Sites available for Forest School use

There are many different sites being used as a base for Forest School use across Derbyshire. Occasionally we are contacted by land owners who would be happy for schools to make use of their sites, see below for information.

Hazelwood near Belper is a privately owned woodland (charges apply) with many different areas within the site. There is an outdoor yurt like building with a fire place for visits in the winter plus toilets.

Waingroves Community Woodland is owned and managed by the local community. It is a large, varied area of woodland with a well documented mining heritage. The community owners are currently undertaking a range of woodland management tasks they would be happy for schools to be involved in.
