Oxheywoode Access for All Bridge
Oxheywoode Access for All Bridge
In order to improve access to the site for everyone, a bridge was constructed by “The Friends of Spring Wood”. It is called “The Oxheywoode Access for All Bridge” . The bridge, which was opened in May 2010, is an important asset as it allows visitors, especially those in wheelchairs, to access the wood without danger from the vehicles entering the site.
Spring Wood
Spring Wood was once owned by the monks of Whalley Abbey and was originally called Oxheyewoode. It is classed as a semi-natural ancient woodland. indicating that there has been a woodland on the site from before 1600. Many woodlands from this period do not exist any more as they were cleared to make way for agricultural land.

Today, Spring Wood has been developed as an area of informal recreation with various tracks and paths through the woods.
