Description

Oakhills Coppice is the largest remaining area of ancient semi-natural woodland within the large complex of woodlands known as Chetterwood. These woods occupy the high ground between the Rivers Tarrant and Allen and have developed on soils formed from drift deposits and clay with flints above the underlying chalk. Oakhills Coppice is important for its communities of epiphytic lichens which are indicative of a long and continuous history as mature woodland.
