All About Mortimores Wood

Mortimores Wood lies just one mile from the centre of the busy town of Chippenham, providing a haven of tranquillity from the bustle of modern life.

It is a small area of Ancient woodland with a recorded history extending back over 800 years and it houses a diversity of plant and bird life only found in such old woodlands.

The wood is owned by the Chippenham Borough Lands Charity and managed by the Mortimores Wood Volunteers.

Mortimores Wood is both a designated County Wildlife Site and Local Nature Reserve.
