New website to make woodlands more accessible

Free interactive resource highlights 14,000 publicly accessible woods

A new website has been launched to make it easy to discover the UK’s 14,000 publicly accessible woods, a £2.1 million project, has been developed to enable people to find their nearest accessible wood and directions to it.

The project has been developed by the Woodland Trust in partnership with other leading organisations such as the Forestry Commission, the National Trust, Wildlife Trusts, RSPB, Yell and DoubleTree by Hilton.

Gail Graham, project manager for VisitWoods, said: “  is a great way for mountain bikers to discover woods close to where they live, as well as further afield. It features lots of great ideas and resources, which we hope will inspire users to try something new.

“The website is a great fit for companies that cater for mountain bikers to support as it will become a widely used information source by their customers and supporters.

“In the long-term our aim is that becomes a vital public service, which thousands of people all over the country will come to use on a regular basis. Any companies which would like to support the project should contact the Woodland Trust on 01476 581 112.”
