Staffhurst Wood

A fine mix of oak, ash and beech with areas of hornbeam and hazel coppice.

These woods are a fine mix of oak, ash and beech with areas of hornbeam and hazel coppice.

The wood is a fragment of the old 'Wildwood' that once covered much of southern England.

It is an Ancient Woodland as it has remained continuously wooded since Saxon times. In addition to the fine trees found here, Staffhurst also contains a beautiful woodland pond.

In spring look out for stunning displays of bluebells.

Each Monday the reserve becomes the territory of one of the finest groups of volunteers in Surrey, the venerable 'Grey Greens'.

This reserve is in the far east of the county, in the borough of Tandridge, east of Red Lane, west of Grants Lane, north and south of New Road. Car parks off Grants Lane.
