Ecclesall Woods Tree Walk

Type:Wildlife & Nature Event

Ecclesall Woods, Abbey Lane, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S7 2QZ
Tree Walks


Meet outside the main entrance to the Woodland Discovery Centre.

Want to learn about trees in a fun and informal way? Then join Sheffield Woodland Connections as we explore Ecclesall Woods, South Yorkshire's largest ancient woodland. The diversity of tree and plant species found here makes it the ideal location to experience everything you ever wanted to know about woodland ecosystems.

The main theme of this two hour long walk will be winter tree ID, using bark and buds to tell trees apart. All attendees will be provided with a link to a downloadable tree ID sheet prepared to accompany the walk. We will also be on the lookout for notable and veteran trees – tape measures will be provided to help establish their age.

Tickets: £7 adult; £5 unwaged; kids under 14 go free. Maximum group size: 20. Although the walk route will stick to main footpaths, it will include some moderate slopes and it is best assumed that paths are muddy. The on site coffee shop will be open until 4pm.
