Stubbs Wood (Hanging Bank) :: Shared Description
Stubbs Wood is located on the Greensand Ridge close to Ide Hill
. There are views to the south over Bough Beech Reservoir
and on to Ashdown Forest in the distance. The site is owned by Kent County Council and managed jointly with Sevenoaks District Council.
Stubbs Wood is part of a large Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) which includes much of the Toys Hill area. It contains many plants characteristic of ancient woodlands including carpets of bluebells in the spring. The site suffered badly in the 1987 storm but natural regeneration and a programme of replanting have helped it to recover. Some huge ancient Oak and Beech trees survived the gales and still remain.
