This is owned by the Woodland Trust and managed by the Barnes Charitable Trust on their behalf. The wood has an impressive stand of Beech, Oak and Yew. Some of the oaks which were planted in the middle of the last centuary had to be thinned and the wood has been used for a marvelous cleft oak paling fence. All the work was done using hand tools on site. The timber frame used for holding the cleft rails for finishing has been left standing.
There are nest boxes and bat boxes which are well used.
The Barnes Charitable Trust was set up in 1991 under the terms of the will of the late John Barnes, who for many years was the owner of Earnseat School.
