This is a young woodland with wet meadow which is situated alongside the River Box. Purchased as a 'Woods on Your Doorstep' site, it is long and thin. The meadow areas are in two blocks which support important plant communities including Southern Marsh Orchids and Greater Birds foot trefoil. Access is only from Dakin Avenue in Boxford and there is a long walk to the site over difficult ground. However the bank vole and otters are known to use the adjacent river so it could be well worth a visit

Flat ford mill - Dedham vale
Picturesque villages, rolling farmland, rivers, meadows, ancient woodlands and a wide variety of local wildlife combine to create what many describe as the traditional English lowland landscape. Because much of East Anglia's traditional grasslands have already been drained and ploughed for arable farming, the hedgerows and wildflower meadows of the Dedham Vale AONB are among some of England's most precious and vulnerable pastoral landscapes.
