I visited the beautiful Heartwood Forest, on the edge of Sandridge, with representatives from the Woodland Trust. We are incredibly lucky to have almost 1,000 acres of beautiful woodland in our constituency. Thanks to the hard work of thousands of volunteers, more than 600,00 trees have been planted and local communities and visitors have taken this new landscape to their hearts.
There’s not just new woodland here though, but precious pockets of ancient bluebell woodland, old hedgerows, wildflower meadows, wonderful bird life and open grassland.
You can also explore the site by bike, horse or on foot. It is a must – see!
