The Woodlands

You are here

The woodlands are all restored former coal mines that have been transformed into  incredible new community woodlands. Formerly sites of heavy industry they now provide space for people and wildlife.  They are great places to walk, play, picnic, run, ride or simply relax and recharge yourself.

Our South Yorkshire Team, working in Partnership with the owners,  The Land Trust, are thrilled to be responsible for the day-to-day management of these special places for South Yorkshire.  Each site is open to the public for free, where visitors of all abilities can enjoy sweeping views, wetlands, woodland grassland, and abundant bird life and immerse themselves in the natural world.

TCV manages the sites, involving volunteers throughout, and we hope for the next ten years to assist communities to make the most of these incredible spaces.
