Glasshouse Spinney

A strip of mature woodland

Glasshouse Spinney consists of a strip of mature woodland with a rich mixture of trees and shrubs. There is a good variety of bird life here.

 

The presence of flowers such as sweet woodruff, yellow archangel, lily-of-the-valley, wood melick, wood anemone and dog’s mercury show that this land has been wooded since ancient times. A treasure trove of fungi including amethyst deceiver, false deathcapturkeytail and dead man’s fingers make for delightful viewing in season.
