Hill Holt Wood & Norton Big Wood - Following the latest guidance from the Government urging everyone to stay at home, we have made the decision to CLOSE our woodlands to the public until further notice. This includes closure of our Hive Café. We will continue to serve our community as best we can during the pandemic but do not want to risk anyone becoming unwell. Thank you for your continued support, we will update you when these circumstances change.
