Delph Woods is a 24 acre site with unsurfaced woodland paths, a shallow stream with footbridges and a grassy area opposite a cricket ground.
Types of habitat
Mixed woodland, ponds, ditches and streams.
What to see
There's a 1.5 mile woodland trail, marked by yellow posts, which leads you past a 200 year old oak tree, along a shallow stream with footbridges. You may spot tree-nesting birds and bats here, including the rare Bechstein's bat.
Delph Woods has limited free parking that you can reach from Gravel Hill (A349) next to Blackwater Drive. There are 2 car parks; a small one near the cricket ground and another in the woodland at the end of the lane.
Your dog must be on a short lead during bird breeding: 1 March to 31 July every year, and when livestock is near. Remember to keep your dog under close control and to pick up after it.
