Basing Woods play trail to be removed

The Forestry Commission is responsible for the site and says the natural play trail in Basing Wood is beyond its expected lifespan and the timber has started to rot, making the structures unstable.  This includes the climbing frame, balance beam and stepping stones which will now be removed.

In their place the Forestry Commission intends to install a new family-friendly trail with the hope that it will inspire people to discover more about this woodland.  For more information about the new 'Tree Explorer' trail, which comes with a free downloadable activities pack for families please click on the link below.
