Broxbourne Woods, Hertfordshire

Broxbourne Woods is Hertfordshire’s only national nature reserve (NNR). It includes vast swathes of ancient woodland, woodland pasture and newly planted areas.

It is predominantly a mix of Sessile Oaks, Hornbeam and Silver Birches, but there are areas of Beech woodland and non-native conifers, too.

The site is also rich in wildlife, with a variety of bird species associated with ancient woodland can be spotted or heard. The morning birdsong is of particular delight in both Wormley Wood and Hoddesdon Park Wood. Both also boast excellent butterfly populations, where rare species such as the purple emperor and white admiral are frequently spotted.
