Martinshaw Woods

Situated on Groby’s border with neighbouring Ratby, Martinshaw Woods consists of 254.5 acres (103.0 ha) of replanted ancient woodland, part of the National Forest. The Woodland Trust is the UK’s leading conservation charity dedicated to the protection of our native woodland heritage.

The County Council are currently undertaking a programme of woodland management which is designed to control the Sycamore and reintroduce the natural indigenous species to the woodland. In addition, areas of Hazel within the wood are to be coppiced which is a traditional form of woodland management.
