A new dog poo bin has been installed at Heartwood Forest, on the main bridleway just above Langley Wood. We know a few people have spotted it, but thought we ought to tell you that it is there!


We know that the bins are well used! They are now emptied twice a week. Thank you to all of you who help us to keep Heartwood Forest looking at its best by making use of them!

Have you seen our Code of Conduct? It was created in order to make sure that all visitors to Heartwood Forest work together so that we can all enjoy the site. There should be copies available in the leaflet dispenser in the car park.





We ask cyclists and horseriders to stick to the designated bridleways and cycle routes, and not to go into the areas of ancient woodland. We also ask dog walkers not to walk more than 4 dogs at a time, and to ensure that their dogs are kept on a lead in the lower field by the car park. These requests are for safety and conservation reasons as we want to make sure that everybody is kept safe and happy – and that includes Heartwood itself!
