Longspring Wood

A small woodland refuge in Kings Langley with an attractive bluebell display in spring.

In spring the reserve has masses of bluebells but offers a quiet refuge at any time of year. It is a good example of Hertfordshire woodland with oak, ash and hazel. Warblers can be seen and heard in spring. In winter, flocks of tits and finches move through the wood feeding on seeds and berries. Badgers and foxes are regularly seen in and around the reserve.
