Herbert Plantation is a mixed woodland of oak, birch, alder and pine. It provides a public amenity for nature conservation, quiet recreation and education.
There is a public footpath no.6 running across the site from north-west to south-east. At its north-easterly end it joins on to footpath no.4 (Yeomans Lane) and at the south-westerly end with byway 37, The Oxdrove. Visitors are asked to keep to the footpaths, in order to avoid disturbing the fauna and flora. There are no bridleways which means access by horse riders and cyclists is not possible. Parking is very limited to a small lay by on the western boundary off Well Street in Burghclere.
Our volunteers help clear storm damage, thinning and mowing in the winter months, with less disruptive work, where possible, being done during the nesting season. If you are interested in helping with such work please contact us.
