Charming ancient woodland, diverse wildlife and rich history make Broxbourne Woods National Nature Reserve (NNR) a truly magnificent place to be.
As Hertfordshire’s only NNR, Broxbourne Woods is a very large area of sessile oak and hornbeam woodland at the northern most part of its natural range.
The reserve is made up of four woods: Bencroft Wood and Broxbourne Wood both owned by Hertfordshire County Council, and Hoddesdonpark Wood and Wormley Wood which are both owned by the Woodland Trust.
All of these woods are Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) as they are home to some rare woodland wildlife.
You can download the following leaflets and audio guide on Broxbourne Woods NNR here.
