Folly Wood, Lidlington

We planted Folly Wood back in 2011/12. The site is 13 hectares (or 33 acres) and sits at the edge of Lidlington, with an amazing view across the Forest of Marston Vale from the top of the hill. 

There are picnic tables, benches and information boards across the site, with mown and surfaced paths that are level enough for buggies and wheelchairs - obviously part of this site is on a fairly steep hill so parts may not be as easily accessible for everyone.

If your friends and family use Folly Wood then please let them know that it is run by the Forest of Marston Vale and not the council. Land is expensive and managing woodlands is expensive. It isn't as simple as putting a tree in the ground and walking away - it costs £20 to plant one tree and look after it for 5 years. So trees don't cost the earth, but they might just save it.
