The Outwoods

Woodhouse Eaves, Leicestershire

The Outwoods

Charnwood Borough Council own and manage this Site of Special Scientific Interest.  Classed as an Ancient Woodland, the Outwoods supports a rich variety of plants, insects and birds typical of such old woodlands.  Wet alder and dry oak/birch woodland is interspersed with blocks of conifer planting, evidence of the extensive clear felling and commercial replanting which took place in the 1940's. The pre-Cambrian rocky outcrops are a characteristic feature of the Charnwood area.

If you visit in Spring, look out for the bluebells which carpet the ground and listen out for birds announcing their territories.
