Foundry Wood Activities

foundry wood

Foundry Wood is a managed access community woodland. Through volunteer work parties the site is fully accessible with paths and facilities for all to use. If you have small people who like trains, they will love watching the trains zoom past from the top of the wood and you can even take your dog for a walk through the woods. A lovely little place to visit if you have an hour to kill, we advise parking in Victoria Park and walking across.

The woodland is open usually between 10am – 5pm for adventures.
