Nearby Routes

Wormley Wood & Nut Wood are part of the Broxbourne Woods National Nature Reserve. They not only provide unique and important habitats, but they are also of local historical importance.

Lying side-by-side, these two ancient woods are rich in native oak and hornbeam and teem with wildlife. There are bird and butterfly species in abundance, as well as varied fungi, mosses and ferns flourishing by the pond in Wormley Wood. Vibrant displays of wild flowers can be seen in the spring and the sweet scent of honeysuckle fills the air in summer months, attracting white admiral butterflies.
