The Clump
This is a large woodland area known as The Clump since the 1820s . It consists of broadleaved woodland with mature range of native trees - Oak, Birch, Willow, Sycamore and Hawthorn. The hedgerows mentioned extend across the site and connect to The Clump. It is unfenced and is accessible.. Several clearings exist, which are dominated by bracken and areas of dead-wood. The Clump is clearly marked on the Bryant map of 1825 and it likely that it was preserved as a distinctive element of woodland during the Enclosure process, In 1940 a Sergeant Hutchinson was shot down by a Messerschmitt nearby. The exact location of the crashed aeroplane is not known.
