Often recommended by Mumblers. Wheldrake Wood is located close to the City of York. It is largely coniferous, growing corsican pine and socts pine as well as larch and some areas of sruce and fir. There are also a great number if individual trees and small stands of oak and birch, as well as a few coniferous rarities such as a giant sequoia. There is a car park at Hardmoor with many informal footpaths throughout the wood. (Watch out for dog poo though – there isn’t a bin at the moment so it can be an issue!).
