Go for a walk in Abbey Wood

We recently looked at the ruins of Lesnes Abbey, and the woodland on the hill above the ruins is lovely at this time of year, and is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest.


An area of ancient woodland, more recently an attraction for Edwardian day trippers, the woods apparently have some features dating back to the Bronze Age. At 217 acres, features include includes ponds, a fossil bed, a chalk pit and nearby grassy meadows and heathland.
