* THIS WOODLAND IS Temporarily Full *
We’ve planted so many trees here that there isn’t any space to plant more. We hope to be able to plant here again in future years.

Nun's Bridges is a green open space and dozens of trees have been planted along Nun's Bridges Road, from the river and up towards Barnham Cross Common on the edges of the town.

Nun's Bridges has some overgrown areas that have been transformed into a wildflower meadow with a line of trees.

Dotted along Nun's Bridges Road you'll find small trees planted in protective shelters.

They may be small in their first year or so, but they'll soon grow out the top of their shelters.

In some areas of Nun's Bridges Road you'll find larger tree shelters with tree species such as Rowan, Scots Pine and Wild Cherry.
