Woodlands Farm Trust, an 89-acre working city farm. Find out about farming life and experience the countryside including native bird species, butterflies, wild flowers and ancient woodland.

Latest news

Most people who visit Woodlands Farm don't get much further then our farmyard, however there are a further 85 acres to explore. So join us for our monthly guided walks around the farm. Our walks will highlight seasonal farm activities such as hedging, lambing, the history of the farm and how it works.


We would like members of the public to fill in our visitors survey to find out about their opinions on the farm. The survey closes on 31st May 2015.  Thank you for taking the time to complete it.
