Raven Point Wood

There is a wide array of woodland and beach walks for all to enjoy which start at the Raven Wood car park. The Raven sand dunes have been forming since the 1600s from sea sand which is being blown onshore where it continues to be trapped and bound in place by plants.

The fields adjoining the forest to the west are the North Slob lands, home to important wild goose populations in winter. People are asked to stay well back from the fields so as not to disturb these birds.

The trees are mainly Corsican pines with areas of other species. Tree planting has happened since the 1930s to prevent coastal erosion and protect the North Slob lands. Beyond the southern end of the wood are more open areas with grasses and flowers.
