Locko Plantation
Locko Plantation
The photograph shows the northern end of the largest open space that has been cut into the Locko Plantation.

“Access [to the plantation] has been further improved by developing more walking routes through the wood. Creating access has been part of the continuing management of the wood, allowing glades and rides to benefit from more light. This will increase areas of woodland flowers and create areas for woodland and grassland butterflies.

“Throughout the plantation management has continued with a process of woodland thinning allowing some trees to mature. Coppicing work is developing an age structure of trees and thus, variety of different woodland habitats within the wood.”

Quoted text from an information board near one of the entrances to the plantation.

The footpath into the trees leads toward the most northerly of three entrances into the SK4263 : Locko Plantation from the SK4263 : Five Pits Trail.

Behind the viewpoint the path continues until it reaches approximately half way along one of the rides cut into the SK4263 : Locko Plantation.
