Granary Wood, Lidlington

We started planting at Granary Wood in 2006 and completed it in early 2007. It’s 3 hectares (or 7.5 acres) at the edge of Lidlington and you can walk there off road from the Forest Centre & Millennium Country Park!

Did you know – Lidlington is on the Bedford – Bletchley line, so you can visit our sites there (this one and Folly Wood) really easily by train.

There are picnic tables, benches and information boards across the site, with mown and surfaced paths that are level enough for buggies and wheelchairs. There is also a geocaching trail on this site.

How to get there:

There is no parking available at this woodland - so please do not drive there!
You can get a train on the Marston Vale line to Lidlington - check out the timetable here.

Run by a charity

If your friends and family use Granary Wood then please let them know that it is run by the Forest of Marston Vale (Registered Charity No.1069229) and not the council!

Looking after woodlands is costly - there are benches to be maintained, bins to be emptied, grass paths to be mown and we need your support. Whether you are fundraising for us or even helping us physically look after our sites by volunteering, it all helps us to keep the Forest a growing and thriving place to live, work and play.
