Springtime in Bourne Wood

The town's most beautiful natural amenity is Bourne Wood, 400 acres of forest to the west of the town which is managed by the Forestry Commission for timber production, nature conservation and recreation, and is open to the public at all times with many secluded paths and woodland trails that attract some 150,000 visitors each year. The tree cover is a mixture of broadleaf and conifer of all ages, their diversity creating ideal conditions for a wide variety of flora and fauna, and one of the best times to visit is in springtime when the woodland can be seen at its best.
