A 41ha Tender Scheme winner in 1999, Stantons Wood is adjacent to Robin Wood near Ticknall with views to Derby and to Ticknall village. This is a multi-access site with particularly good facilities for horse riders. The owners have created a permissive bridleway which links to the definitive network and a carriage driving course which links to an existing cross country course on the farm.
Nature conservation works include two wetland scrapes, a wildflower meadow, new hedgerows planted with native species and a spinney for game birds. An avenue of small leaved lime is an attractive feature along the right of way. There is a population of deer in the area and so deer fences surround the site. A high seat and deer hide have been provided.
Please note that equestrian access is by arrangement with the landowner only. Contact 01332 865979 for further information.
