Country Walk Summary

High Wood & Meadow Sssi near Everdon

High Wood is one of a localised group of ancient, semi-natural woodlands. The wood exhibits a high degree of naturalness and has a well preserved coppice-with-standards structure. The varied topography and drainage of the site (with many small streams and flushes) gives rise to a rich ground flora. The adjacent meadow represents an excellent example of a once geographically widespread acid grassland. The mixed tree and shrub cover and adjoining thick hedgerows extend the range of habitat for animals, especially birds and invertebrates.
