An exciting phase of the ongoing project at Bishop’s Wood has just been completed – the installation of brand new interpretation boards and oak signage. This should make visits to the wood even easier and more rewarding.
At the car park a map panel shows walking and horse riding routes around the wood, including an easy access trail for those less mobile and links to the London Outer Orbital Path (LOOP). It also shows the newly improved picnic area on the easy access trail, with new picnic benches and enhanced access. As well as the map, new waymarking around the wood will help follow the different routes.
Other interpretation panels, which can be found along the newly surfaced paths, provide an opportunity to learn more about the woodland. They cover a diverse range of topics, including history and archaeology, woodland management, wildlife and heathland. Oak monoliths, routed with the new hazel leaf logo for Bishop’s Wood, now mark all the entrances to the wood. These are a similar design to that used at nearby Oxhey Woods. There is also a new leaflet.
The work, which also includes resurfacing the main paths and the car park and extensive woodland restoration, is being joint-funded by Three Rivers District Council and the Forestry Commission and managed by the Countryside Management Service.
