Wood End Thrift, near Marston Moretaine

We planted at Wood End Thrift in early 2015. It’s 11 hectares (or 27 acres) adjoined to the ancient semi-natural woodland of Marston Thrift, outside Marston Moretaine.

Did you know – There is evidence of a 2000 year old iron age enclosure and a 400-800 year old medieval moat on the site. These areas have been left as open spaces.

There are mown and surfaced paths that are level enough for buggies and wheelchairs.

If your friends and family use Wood End Thrift 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.
