Sun peering through trees at Jackson's Bank Forest

This 35 hectare (ha) woodland is part of the Duchy of Lancaster’s Needwood Estate in Staffordshire.

It is defined as a replanted ancient woodland, meaning that woodland has stood on this site since at least 1600.

Given its ancient origins, Jackson’s Bank has retained much of its semi-natural plants. Good examples of the plants found here include: bluebell, wood anemone, wild garlic, early purple orchid, herb Paris and wood spurge.
