Eight different species today! A great place to walk the dogs and admire the flora and fauna. Variety of signposted walks of differing lengths and we have heard a cuckoo there.

Really nice walk today. Well kept and litter free. Some dog mess though, and a neatly bagged up pile left in front of the sign asking moronic dog owners to clear up. No point asking these cretins nicely I'm afraid, they're probably illiterate too. Still, hats of to the rsvp for having well marked walkways which remain for the most... More

As someone that has grown up in canterbury, these woods have been enjoyed endlessly. Always exploring and playing in them throughout my childhood, and the tracks are great for taking long walks, bike rides and running. It's a beautiful little woodland all year round and just on the doorstep to escape the pollution of city life. When I'm in need... More

My wife and I went there with the dogs, we were a little disappointed to only be allowed in certain parts of the reserve, I understand why, considering how many people clearly hadn't cleaned up after their pets, we however do and would have loved to experience the whole place.

Some of the pathways do look a little unkept but I always see rspb employees there and during the winter there is probably a limit as to what can be done about it. More doggy bins would be great as I always see backs of poo left randomly . I have not seen anyone available to do a guided tour... More
