Within easy reach of London, Woodhall is situated in the triangle between Hertford, Stevenage and Ware. Hertford and Ware are historic market towns with traditional high street shops, and Stevenage is a lively post-war new town with contemporary retailers and extensive leisure facilities. The rural villages close by are all thriving, with vibrant communities, shops, schools, churches, clubs and a health clinic providing valuable services for young and old alike.

There are many opportunities to sample the delights that Woodhall has to offer, as a tenant of one of its many let residential or commercial properties, as a grazier, as a visitor to its many events or as a walker enjoying stunning views from rights of way.

Forestry Works Update - 12/05/2017
As part of our ongoing forestry management plan we are currently carrying out works in Park Wood, Bramfield.

Some of the elements of Corsican Pine are at a size where they are due to be felled before they get too large for the commercial market which they were planted for.  The first section of the tree will go for saw logs for softwood materials, the next section will go for chip wood for biomass sustainable energy.  The remainder of the tree, which is the lop and top, will remain in site to break down naturally into the forest floor.

The removal of the coniferous element will allow light to the forest floor which will encourage the next generation of trees to grow but also encourage the native woodland plants and flowers to re-establish in these areas.

We have some areas of Hornbeam which are being coppiced which means that they will re-grow off the remaining tree stump, some clearing of windblown fallen Spruce trees and an element of selected ride edge thinning.  All of these operations will encourage the biodiversity of the woodland by allowing light to the forest floor.  The area is regularly monitored for impact on local wildlife.  During felling precautions are taken to limit the disturbance.

These works will add to the wildlife value of this area and ensure that Park Wood continues to have a variety of habitats with the aim of sustaining and increasing native species.  We aim to have completed the works by 16th June 2017.

Amphibians - 22/03/2017
These March days are when the ground temperature starts to rise, heralding the arrival of Spring at the Woodhall Estate.  The early willows blossom to give that splash of yellow and white to the tree lines, while the woodland flowers such as snowdrops and violets beat the primroses to their first appearance.
 
Meanwhile the amphibians have been steadily emerging from their winter hibernation.  Frogspawn has already been laid in many of the Estate ponds and it has been a very busy week in the Park as toads appear in large numbers heading for spawning grounds in the larger water bodies around the Home Farm.  The deadwood and brash piles, which we take care to leave after forestry operations, provide an essential food source and refuge environment for newts, which are masters of camouflage on the woodland floor.
