Roughton Moor Wood

This nature reserve is closed due to a police investigation following the discovery of hazardous chemicals.

The reserve consists of woodland of oak, birch, rowan and Scots pine. The woodland has regenerated on former heathland, some remnants of which still survive in open glades. There are some fine trees and there is an impressive avenue of ageing Corsican pines planted apparently as the approach to a large house, which was never built. Fungi are a notable feature.
