NWT Honeypot Wood is a delightful small reserve with a wealth of history and character.
Thought to be a remnant of wild wood dating back to the retreat of the last ice age its more recent history includes a period of distinguished service in World War II, when buildings on the site were used as a bomb dump for the adjacent RAF Wendling.
This whitish-flowered orchid is present at Honeypot. However, it can sometimes prove quite difficult to find, as it is a species that doesn’t flower every year (June to July are the months when it should). The species grows up to 60cm tall.
Please note: the visitor access trails are currently not well defined but we hope to improve the situation soon.
