People will be able to discover a beautiful area of woodland in the heart of Ore when the Speckled Wood community project holds an Open Day on Saturday May 22 from 10.30am - 3pm.

Speckled Wood is a 12.7 acre woodland park which provides a habitat for a wealth of mammals, birds and invertebrates as well as a diverse range of plants. The Ore Valley Stream flows through the woods.

The free Open Day offers tours of the woods, refreshments, a seed and plant swap and children’s activities.
