Heartwood Forest car park closed to prevent further spread of Covid-19

Woodland Trust sites remain accessible to the public in line with Government advice, reiterated during the Prime Minister’s Sunday press conference, that physical and mental health benefits of being able to be outside safely is something they recognise as a positive thing.

However, we continue to urge all visitors to maintain social distancing, and are aware that some of our larger more popular sites attracted large numbers of visitors this weekend (21/22 March). To help manage this we have temporarily closed the car park at Heartwood Forest. We advise that people carry out recreational activities as locally as possible.

We will keep the access to our sites under constant review and in line with Government advice, and will monitor the situation at a local level over the coming days. We hope you respect the intention behind this measure, and will post any further updates on this page as and when they become available. Ian Froggatt, Estate Manager - Central England
