Monkmead Woods

Monkmead heathland

Monkmead Woods is located along the River Chilt, a tributary of the River Arun. The site is made up of Willow, Alder and Birch woodland, heathland and quaking bog habitats. These mixed habitats create a mosaic of wet, damp and dry areas rich in biodiversity.

There is a small car park off Monkmead Lane with a public bridleway and several permissive footpaths through the woodland.
