Sadlers Wells Woods

Sadlers Wells Woods

Sadlers Wells Community Woodland (“SWCW”), a registered charity (No. 1105117), was formed to acquire and manage approximately three acres of ancient semi-natural woodland known as Sadlers Wells Wood on the edge of the village of Bunbury for the benefit of the local community and to extend it by the planting of a further two acres with native broadleaved trees. The Wood is a remnant of a much larger wood which is mentioned in the Domesday Book and it is a much appreciated local amenity which occupies a prominent position in the Cheshire landscape.


Access to the Wood is pedestrian only and car parking is only available on suitable parts of the nearby public highways. Visitors are very welcome but please avoid disturbance and respect the local wildlife and plantlife. Whilst reasonable precautions are taken to ensure the safety of visitors, they should take care as the ground may be rough, slippery, or uneven, especially during or after inclement weather. 

Join us

The Friends of Sadlers Wells Wood are members of the public who kindly support the work and objectives of SWCW. The wood itself produces no income and SWCW therefore has to raise all the funds needed to pay for expenditure such as insurance, maintenance, etc. We hope that people who enjoy this amenity will join to help finance the maintenance and improvement of the wood. The annual subscription is currently a minimum of £5-00 per person If you are interested please contact Dave Clapperton (details below). Members also receive a newsletter which is sent out twice a year in Spring and Autumn and often come along to help out at our Working Parties. 

Information about current matters can also be found on our notice boards outside the Village Hall and at the Easterly entrance to the wood. More information, including past Newsletters, is available at our website:
