Monks Wood Meander is a good long walk starting south east of Monks Wood and heads anti clockwise around the wood and local area. Be prepared for a good long walk and some interesting caches.
Monks Wood used to house an environmental research station, which is now closed/closing down. Bevills Wood, the southern twin wood hosted a paintball centre and no public right of way.
It is approximately 6 miles and will take 3 hours. There are several parking locations around the walk which can be used to split the Meander up.
Part of Stage 4 (Monks Wood)
Parking Available at this one. It is at the Southern edge of Monks Wood itself. You can now enjoy a peaceful walk through this National Nature Reserve. Maybe look for Postie's cache and imagine where the caches are going to go if I get permission to hide them here.
The trail for now continues on the North Eastern side of the wood at another parking space if you don't want to walk.
This is a micro-tube. Please bring writing implement.
You are now at the entrance to Monks Wood itself. It is a SSSI - Site of Special Scientific Interest and is managed by Natural England. I am in contact with Natural England and awaiting a decision on whether I can place some geo-caches within the bounds of the wood itself.
