Bracken takeover
Bracken takeover
Marginal land on the edge of Bringewood, this will probably end up as part of the forest one day. Bracken is a huge problem here and thrives on the heavy yellow soils formed by the breakdown of the Silurian mudstones.
Bringewood :: SO4973
An ancient hunting forest on the Ludlow Anticlyne. Traditionally an oak forest, coppiced for charcoal it is now a commercial conifer wood. It is managed, but not entirely owned by the Forestry Commission.
The charcoal used to supply the iron smelters at Bringewood Forge.
Since the late 1970s the forest has been opened up to recreational use and is now quite busy, with a dense path network.
The forest carries a large herd of fallow deer including the long haired variety supposedly unique to Haye Park.
Mortimer Forest :: SO4973
Name made up by the Forestry Commission in about 1970.
