Rowley Wood

Rowley Wood (formally known as Cherry Wood) is a Community Woodland in Stoke by Nayland, run by an elected steering group for the benefit of the local community and as a resource for local schools. The group has adopted a code of practice, which includes no spraying, using and developing local skills and planting locally indigenous species wherever possible.

It was established in 2001 when the group purchased a degrading cherry wood. Since then the group has gone from strength to strength, to include: creating a tree nursery, planting indigenous species in the wood, creating reptile refuge, a story telling area, bird feeding station and actively involving  our primary school.


Rowley Wood provides an excellent resource for our work in orienteering and environmental science.
