Quinney’s Wood

In 2002 Fred Quinney and the Woodcutters created a small wood on a piece of pastureland owned by the Environment Agency between Davis Lane and the Blind Yeo river, a site of approximately 1 hectare. Advice and funding was obtained from the Environment Agency and other grants were obtained from various groups allowing for a total of 2,500 trees and shrubs to be planted.

The woodland, now successfully established, had been informally known as the New Wood and the Blind Yeo Wood, but in 2012 the Woodcutters were given the official go-ahead by the Environment Agency to call the site Quinney’s Wood, in honour of their founder. The naming ceremony took place on 27th April 2013.
