Bury Wood is grazed by our conservation herd of longhorn cattle in April, August, November and December. If you see our cows while in the area, please remember they are livestock and not pets, keep your distance, and keep dogs on leads around them.

Bury Wood is a quiet, wooded area full of fascinating veteran trees including Grimston's Oak, an oak pollard reckoned to be about 350 years old.
