Willesley Wood

Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire

Willesley Wood

Michael Heseltine planted the first tree in the development phase of the National Forest at this 42ha Woodland Trust site near Ashby in 1991.

Young trees, mature woodland, meadow, reedbeds, lake and stream provide a range of habitats for birds, butterflies and mammals.  The earliest plantings are along Willesley Lane and Ashby Road. Woodland Trust members or others who have donated or planted trees can identify the location of the plot containing their trees by referring to the wooden posts with reference numbers marked on.
