Woodhead Woodlands is open to the public. The woods are different since Storm Arwen, with some areas no longer accessible. Visitors are advised to exercise due care and attention, and observe signage. Dogs should remain on leads for safety, to protect wildlife and farming stock surrounding the woods.

According to the Trust’s ethos, some fallen timber remains, to decompose for the benefit of insects and wildlife. The Windyhills section of our woodlands remains closed to the public for health and safety reasons due to storm damage. For your own safety please respect this closure. The Trust is assessing these woods to bring them back into public use. 


We acknowledge our volunteer sub-group, lead by Brian Cleaver, for the efforts to assess and improve the Health and Safety in the woodlands.
