As well as containing some of the oldest oak trees in Norfolk, Thursfood Wood also has an excellent display of spring bluebells, summer ferns and autumnal fungi.
Good numbers of common woodland birds are present.
It is thought that some of the oak trees in Thursford could be more than 500 years old. Consequently, it’s no surprise that a great deal of time and management goes into looking after such venerable specimens: many large branches in the canopy of the trees have to be removed to prevent them from becoming unstable or dangerous.
