Bagworth Wood

Bagworth Wood is a 26ha Tender Scheme winner from 2000 on the edge of Bagworth.  The woodland is predominantly a commercial poplar crop with woody shrubs to add diversity and wildlife habitat.  A large area of wetland have been retained.  Groups of native black poplar have been planted in the wetter areas by the pond.

A permissive riding route has been created around the perimeter of part of the site and a new dedicated footpath links existing Rights of Way across the site to those to the west.

Bagworth Wood is adjacent to the National Forest 'Coal Tips to Country Parks' medium-distance walk.
