BILLERICAY - HISTORY and NATURE WALK

About this Event

FREE FOR FAMILY CARERS

(meet other carers / bring a companion / the person you care for*)

Join us in the Great Outdoors for a visit to Norsey Woods: from bronze age remains to WW1 training trenches, rich in both history and nature. A specialist from the Norsey Wood Society will guide us through this unique wood.

"Norsey Wood is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) a Scheduled Ancient Monument and a Local Nature Reserve, as an ancient coppice woodland with a wide variety of plants and animals. The wood is divided by rides or pathways many of which are thought to date back to Iron Age times. The earliest written evidence for the rides is a map of 1593. They have been described as the oldest known woodland rides which still exist." (basildon.gov.uk)
