The Great Central Woodland is an area of woodland in the heart of the village. Once, much of it was part of the railway marshalling yard that was so important in the village until the 1960’s.

It was purchased by the Parish Council in 2016 for the benefit of the community.

The Great Central Woodland Management Committee was set up by Parish Council to manage this woodland and wetland area on behalf of the Council for the benefit of the community as a whole.


A Few Simple Rules

We want everyone to be able to enjoy the woodland so please make sure that your enjoyment doesn’t spoil it for others by keeping to these few simple rules.

  1. We ask dog walkers to please keep your dog under control. Clear up any mess and place in any of the village poo bins.
  2. Please don’t litter, take your litter home.
  3. No motorcycles or quad bikes in the woodland, wetland or on the paths.
  4. No fires or barbeques and no camping, please.
  5. Please take care. The Woodland is a natural habitat and is entered at your own risk. Woodford-cum-Membris Parish Council take no responsibility for any injuries incurred.
  6. If you see a problem, let us know! Email: hazards@greatcentralwoodland.org

The  Great Central Woodland is a resource for the whole community. As well as providing an open space for recreation the Woodland acts as a centre for local community projects.
