Sheet Hedges Wood

A 26ha woodland on the outskirts of Groby managed by Leicestershire County Council. It was opened to the public in 1998 with National Forest grant aid together with funding from the County Council and Forestry Authority.  The western part of the woodland contains a car park and a picnic area.

Most of this woodland block has been harvested with new broadleaf planting replacing the conifers that once stood there.  The eastern part of the woodland is a Site of Specific Scientific Interest (SSSI) and is one of the best examples of ash and alder woods in Leicestershire.

Please note: Access to the SSSI is via the marked nature trail only.
