CABILLA AND REDRICE WOODS
We have recently acquired this site and we are now busy restoring this magnificent woodland to its former glory.
TYPE OF HABITAT
Large area of mixed woodland with ancient oak and hazel coppice. The woodlands are very variable, with areas of recent hazel coppice, neglected oak coppice, mixed broad leaves and conifers.
Grid Reference: SX 129 652
Take extra care during felling operations.
From the A38, 5 Km (3 miles) east of Bodmin, take the turning towards Cardinham (next to White Lodge). Cross the bridge over the River Fowey, and access is via a track on the right past the sawmill.
Cabilla is certainly one of the largest, and possibly the finest, ancient woodlands in Cornwall. Sadly the woodland has been neglected and there is much work to be done to restore it. The Trust's Habitat Appeal has funded the purchase of this magnificent woodland and is now funding its restoration. Steve Chudleigh has been appointed as a full-time ranger and along with the help of a small army of volunteers he has the task of returning the woods to their former glory. Cabilla is open to the public and you are welcome to visit.
