Crick Jubilee Wood (ID: 103000000009278)
Crick Jubilee Wood
The site is approximately 1km north-east of the centre of Crick village. It was originally 3 separate fields used for animal grazing with agricultural land on its east and western sides. Two of the fields adjoin the Leicester arm of the Grand Union Canal on their northern boundary and on the southern boundary of these same fields is a brook which eventually feeds into the Avon.
The woodland was planted over the winter of 2013/4 covering 4.5 hectares. The site includes an easement area for two underground high pressure pipelines (National Grid gas and chalk slurry for Rugby Cemex) where we are developing a wildflower meadow. The trees are 80% native broadleaved varieties. A diverse mix of trees have been planted.
The site is has become a popular open space for the benefit of local residents and visitors to the area. The site is accessible from the adjoining canal and will continue to attract visitors using the canal. Public access is provided by an existing walking path which runs from the village through the site and on to the canal towpath. We have also added a gravel track through the adjoining sports fields which connects to a car parking area by the main woodland entrance, to provide access for visitors with mobility issues.
Seats and picnic tables are provided throughout the site. A fire-pit and pond dipping platform have been provided and weekly visits are made by the local Primary School children who use the woods for their Forest School activities.
