Badby Woods

Badby Wood is a 47.2 hectare biological Site of Special Scientific Interest south of Badby, Northamptonshire. This is ancient semi-natural woodland on acidic soils, and it has been forested for over 700 years. It is owned by the Fawsley Estate and is open to the public.  It is most famous for its bluebells but is worth a visit any time of the year.  You enter the woods through the remains of a gatehouse and meander along paths through the woodland.  It’s great for photography and a popular spot for dog walkers.
