Apley Woods

Welcome to Apley Woods

With its 56 acres of meadows, pools, trees and winding footpaths, Apley Castle and its woods are a fine example of a 19th Century landscaped woodland.

Records mention woodland on this site as far back as 1300. However the present woods were largely created during the last 200 years as part of the ornamental gardens to the Georgian manor house built in 1792 and demolished in 1955. The woodland’s historical interest and rich diversity make it extremely valuable.

Many of the species of wildlife to be found in Apley Woods, especially some of the birds and bats are of ecological importance.
