Situated on the site of a medieval woodland it contains ancient limes and a wealth of butterflies. A joy for any nature lover at anytime of the year. There is a small car park.

Lovely walks but the single track road leading to the site is in a dangerous condition and needs repairing. It put me off visiting again which is a shame.

Hi, The state of the road has been noticed and is programmed in to be repaired. I don't know dates at the minute but rest assured it will get done. Thanks and I hope you will visit again in the future.

The link to the What's on guide takes you to a guide for 2016!! Is anything happening in 2018?

Neil, 25/Mar/2018

Hi Neil, Sorry for that it has obviously been missed. The What's On guide was produced by LCC using money from the Limewoods Partnership funding. This project has since ended. Any events that are to be run at Chambers will be listed on their events page. Currently there is nothing planned in but keep your eyes on the page for future events. Sorry again.

Lovely wood with some really nice walks. Sadly let down a little by some fellow dog walkers not clearing up after their dogs (there is absolutely no excuse for this whatsoever, I clear up after all mine easily enough, a bin is provided and there are plenty of products available on the market to carry used poop bags such as Dicky bags and Bogg bags) and a minority of dog walkers allowing their off leash dogs to run up to on leash dogs (a leashed dog is leashed for a reason and nobody should EVER allow an unleashed dog to run up uninvited). We are very fortunate to have access to this beautiful area to walk our dogs in free of charge, free toilets and free parking, fellow dog walkers please try to be considerate and responsible with your pets so we are all able to enjoy this privilege for years to come.
