Forthcoming Events – August



Thursday 4th August

A few of us are going to check out this lovely place and hopefully make further plans for a clan gathering : The Outwoods is 110 acres of ancient woodland to the south of Loughborough and is one of the oldest surviving woodland sites in Charnwood

The Outwoods consists of a variety of different routes and walks, including an easy access path with a bird feeding station. There is a 24 hour car park for visitors, a children’s natural play area and a cafe. The north side of the ancient woodland is home to an display of beautiful bluebells during Spring every year.

The Outwoods is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) by Natural England, which means it is protected by law to conserve its wildlife and geology. It is also part of the ancient Charnwood Forest and is the most easterly part of the National Forest.
