Firestone Copse is a hidden gem in the heart of Wootton Bridge.
Loved by hikers, dog walkers and families looking for a special afternoon in the sunshine, Firestone Copse offers it all.
The car park offers ample parking bordering the woods and leading directly to the paths into the forest. The pathways within the forest are planned and maintained by the Forestry Commission and are good quality in the sense that they are defined and weed free. Do note though – the pathways are crude concrete mixed with stone and aren’t smooth – but are suitable for electric wheelchair users (or manual wheelchair users with occasional support).
For those more ambulant, off-track explorations unearth some delightful unexpected surprises such as hidden brooks, fairy-tale seating, and the beautiful lake at the bottom. If you’re lucky, you might catch a glimpse of nesting herons or newly born chicks!
