Foxley Wood, Linton
Foxley Wood was purchased by the Woodland Trust on 17th November 1995. It extends to some 28.7ha and was previously two large arable fields. Local people were involved in the sites design and large numbers turned out to plant the first trees at a public event. One hectare in the far SW corner was retained for the exclusive design by Linton Primary School. They elected to have a surfaced path, restore the pond, build a mound with spoil later known as 'Linton Knob' and interestingly, plant quite a high proportion of mixed conifer trees when every child in the school came out to a dedicated tree planting day. A 'secret path' leads from school playing fields to the SE.

A permissive bridleway was included along the eastern boundary and a car park built at the Linton Heath end. Superb views can be had from the site over the Trent Valley to the Peak District beyond, from the site.
