Prior's Wood

About

Once part of the Tyntesfield Estate, ancient woodland, streams and plantations can all be found in this wildlife-rich wood. During spring time the woodland transforms into a field of bluebells, the displays are particularly good in the west and southern part of the wood. Home to a variety of birds, such as the garden warbler, chiffchaff, spotted flycatcher and buzzard, Prior’s Wood is ideal for getting away from the busy city, enjoying beautiful nature and flowers or having a family day out.

The best time to visit the site is from April till November but it is open at all times. Dogs are allowed, but need to be kept on lead. There are public footpaths that run throughout the wood, but can be muddy and steep-sided. When travelling by car, you will reach Prior’s Wood in 20-25 minutes. By bus it will take about 35 minutes.
