Les King Wood
Les King Wood
This woodland was planted in February 2000 on a site owned and managed by Cambridgeshire County Council to improve the environment for wildlife and the landscape for local people. It was named the 'Les King Wood' in memory of Les King, a much respected forestry contractor who lived in the village of Cottenham and planted many woodlands and hedges in Cambridgeshire.

A grant received from the Forestry Authority helped with the cost of planting, but the 'Les King Wood' was largely planted on a public planting day with the help of local people including the children and families of 6 Cambridgeshire Nursery Schools.

The main aims of this wood are to enhance the long-term appearance of the landscape, and to create a quiet place to enjoy walks along the rides meandering through the woods and glades. A variety of mixed broad-leafed species of tree have been planted such as Oak, Ash, Alder, Wild Cherry, Crab Apple, Hornbeam and Field Maple as well as many woody shrubs.
