A small one-and-a-half hectare woodland opposite the University of Cumbria's campus library on Nook Lane in Ambleside. We now have ownership of this wood which contains some large veteran beech and Scots pine trees dating back to the nineteenth century. With help from the previous owner, Julian Eldridge, a local tree consultant and Friends member Luke Steer, has done a tree survey and management plan. This will identify how we will look after the veteran trees, which make great habitats for many woodland fungi, insects, birds and red squirrels, and enhance the woodland setting of Ambleside itself.
