Bayhurst Wood Nature Reserve – Autumn Hiking Chat & Photography

The Bayhurst Wood Nature Reserve is a wonderful wood to experience beech, oak and hornbeam trees. This semi-ancient natural woodland is especially delightful during the autumn months as the foliage changes colour.

I created and hiked a 3.5 mile loop on this occasion. I encourage you to bring yourself and the family here, put on your hiking boots and get walking the magnificent hiking trails in the wood and beyond! Bayhurst Wood Nature Reserve is a great starting point for hiking into the surrounding countryside.
