Directions / Parking
Main car park in Country Park (Donation)
Having opened in 1991, Beacon Wood is a relatively new country park, but it has rapidly become a firm favourite with locals due to its rolling, varied woodland and interesting history.
In 1935, the excavation of clay for cement manufacture began, resulting in the pitted landscape we see now. Today, the park features a shady picnic area, and a variety of trails running around old clay pits which have almost completely reverted back to a natural state, with a wide mix of flora and fauna.
