Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve and Visitor Centre
Visitors welcome! 

Browse around the Visitor Centre shops or relax after a stroll in the Forest Table Restaurant. Take a walk to the mighty Major Oak, pick up one of our fun family nature trails, or just stand and admire the weird and wonderful shapes of the ancient oak trees, twisted by age and weathered into living sculptures. Take time out to appreciate the unique ecology of Sherwood. The natural decay of fallen wood means the woodland teems with insect life, fungi, birds and bats. In partnership with the Sherwood Forest Trust, we currently have a woodland grazing project at Sherwood, with Hebridean sheep and Dexter cattle helping ensure that open areas of medieval heathland do not revert to scrub.

THIS IS A PAST EVENT

Friends of Thynghowe

The friends of Thynghowe invites you to learn new skills and help peel away the layers of history of a special part of Sherwood Forest.

The latest techniques will give us a detailed plan of the whole area - then it's over to you, to use newly learnt skills to take part in "ground training" to uncover remaining evidence of 4000 years of this living landscape. There's also a chance to investigate archives to find out about activities that may have taken place.

Join us as we take this incredible journey to conserve Sherwood's diverse heritage for future generations.

To find out more or to book a limited place please get in touch with us on 01623 827326 or email greenwood@nottscc.gov.uk or visit www.thynghowe.org.uk/News
