Mike's Wood Mike’s Wood was created in appreciation of a former Secretary of the Friends, Mike Houston. A generous local member, Ann Beddard helped us with this by giving us some land she owned, so enabling us to create a 4.81 ha native wood. During 1993/4 oak, alder, ash, birch, rowan, scots pine, hawthorn and juniper were planted. We have created a footpath through the wood, linking into other routes and also to Cumbria Wildlife Trust’s woodland. A free leaflet for this walk is available to download here.Reasons to visit: 36 different bird species have been recorded in the wood, including the Goldcrest, the UK’s smallest bird Lovely views out of the wood south towards Morecambe Bay See conservation in action with the “dead hedging” around young hazel to keep the deer off! Bluebells in the spring Visit any time of the year, for a great walk and maybe enjoy a coffee at WILFS cafe afterwards.
