Welcome to our Web site about the Upper Dearne woodlands.  We will tell you about the woods, what you can hope to see there.  We will also tell you what the group are doing to look after the woods, both for the benefit of the plants and animals to be found there, and also for people visiting.  The woods are open to the public every day of the year, but only if you are on foot.  There is no access for wheeled vehicles, but we hope to make some limited access for wheelchairs where the terrain allows in the future.
