This has enabled the Woodland Trust to open up a new section of permissive bridleway, starting at the horse hop next to the entrance to Heartwood.

It runs parallel to the car park track, with a hedge separating it from the cars on the track.

At the other end, riders turn left away from the car park and over another horse hop allowing access onto the main bridleway going from Pound Farm up past Langley Wood.

They are part of the Magical Meander, a trail which leads to the Magical Wood. They are sponsored by the Disney Store and are designed to give families even more to enjoy during a walk at Heartwood.

They represent the wildlife that thrives around Heartwood Forest.

At the centre of the Magical Wood is now a fantastic picnic table, representing all the trees that we have at Heartwood Forest.
