Poulton Wood Nature Reserve
Working with nature in a spirit of friendship, creating a magical wood for all.

Amidst the trees and wildlife, there is an award-winning conservation project taking place set in 28 acres of beautiful bluebell woodland with adjoining garden, fields, ponds, hedgerows, willow plots and poly tunnel.
The reserve is owned and operated by Canterbury Oast Trust, a charity dedicated to the residential care and training of adults with learning disabilities, and is run as a Life Skills conservation project.

It is cared for with love and imagination and over the past 19 years has been brought back successfully to how it stands now utilising traditional coppice management methods.
