Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Wood (QEDJW) (ID: 104000000026394)
The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Wood is the flagship wood of The Jubilee Woods project which aimed to create 60 new woods of 60 acres or more in celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. It sits within the National Forest area of Leicestershire, a largely agricultural landscape but with tree cover increasing across the region due to the efforts of the National Forest company. This large site is neighboured by established secondary woodland to the north and other National Forest plantations to the south and west. Sence Valley Country park, a Forest Enterprise site, is located a short distance to the east with a bridleway and footpaths linking the two sites. The surrounding countryside is dominated by arable agriculture. It is a landscape of gently rolling hills and shallow valleys and this woodland makes a significant contribution to the diversity of habitats and landscape features in the locality. The woodland sits between the villages of Normanton le Heath and Heather, to the west of Coalville.
