Snarkhurst Woods, ancient woodland
Synopsis from a sign within the wood - Recently placed into a Forestry Authority Management Plan this wood is probably one of the largest and certainly one of the most interesting ancient woodlands on the Gault Clay within Kent. It is recorded in 1645 as Snockhurst Wood... It is very unusual as the hillock (Bobs Knoll) is an upsurge of chalk in the western part of the wood... Snarkhurst covers an area of approximately 80 acres... This broad ride certainly offered a wide variety of flora including wild strawberries, foxgloves, buttercups, ragged robin and orchids. I also heard woodpeckers and cuckoos.
