Webb's Wood has been managed as a commercial woodland by the Forestry Commission for decades but has a wide variety of habitats within its boundaries.  There are large areas of broadleaved woodland, blocks of conifer and wide open areas where the trees have been felled.  There are dry areas and boggy wet areas.  The FC's plan is to return the entire site to native British woodland species as the commercial crops are harvested.  It is a large area and holds a wide and interesting variety of birds at all times of the year.  Paths are well defined through the wood but can get extremely muddy in places.  It is an interesting site that promises to get better as the FC develop their plans. Grid Ref: SU045855.
