The Ride

This follows a footpath that runs along the southern edge of the original wood. It is flanked by a dense tree belt on the other side.

Instead of trees, the visitor will find grasses, thistles, vetches, teasels, nettles and willow herbs growing here. Because the vegetation is not tall enough to hide the skies, sunlight can reach the ground here even during the summer. Thus, flowers can bloom freely. These provide nectar for butterflies and other insects, so this place can feel far more alive than the wood during July and August. Look out for butterflies, such as speckled wood and gatekeeper, which inhabit woodland edges.
