Woodland and Wood Sculptures


From The Woodman in Wormley West End to Broxbourne Woods Sculpture Trail and back




There is an interesting sculpture trail in the middle of this walk but it is the peace and tranquillity of the ancient hornbeam and oak woodland that is its essence.


The walk starts from The Woodman pub in Wormley West End, goes north through fields and woodland to Broxbourne Woods Sculpture Trail and makes its way back by a half-different route.


Most of the way we are on the National Nature Reserve Trail, clearly marked by butterfly waymarks.


There are no steep inclines and, except for small patches of mud round gates in a farm, the surface underfoot is good: particularly so round the sculpture trail.
