Seeley Copse Goodwood

We are very fortunate to have links with the Goodwood estate and in particular Seeley Copse, where our Forest school takes place.

Seeley Copse is 7.5 hectares of ancient woodland on Goodwood Home Farm that for the past 30 years has been given over exclusively to educational use. Two hundred years ago chalk was dug from part of it to make mortar for the House and Estate walls, which has resulted in holes and hills that the nature trail climbs and winds around. In the last century parts of it had been coppiced and a variety of ‘exotic’ tree species had been planted, but there was infrequent management and so selective felling in 2009 has allowed more light into the woodland.
