Exploring 6000 year old Stone Age reserve – Northmoor Wood Nature Reserve

It was an enormous pleasure hiking the 8.7 hectare Northmoor Wood Nature Reserve which also has special geological interest. Primarily, a chalk quarry dating back to the Stone Age 6000 years old where many tools made of flint have been found. This is a superb place for a family day out, for mountain bikers and nature lover alike. There’s also a Caravan and Motorhome Club site next-door if you wanted to spend a weekend in the area!
