Works to maintain a healthy woodland at Bacton Woods, near North Walsham, will take place this autumn.

Felling and thinning operations will be carried out by woodland owners the Forestry Commission from late October or early November through until Christmas. These dates may alter for operational reasons, but the public will be kept informed of any changes.

Bacton Woods is owned by the Forestry Commission and managed by North Norfolk District Council. The 280 acre woodland is popular with dog walkers and off road cyclists.

Cllr Maggie Prior, North Norfolk District Council Cabinet Member for Leisure, said: “Bacton Woods is enormously popular with a wide range of people and we work hard with the Forestry Commission to keep it in good condition.

“These temporary, partial closures will ensure the ongoing health of the woodland and we thank the public for bearing with us while these vital works are carried out.”

The work will be carried out in sections. Those sections will be cordoned off to the public while they are being worked on, allowing access to the majority of the site to be maintained at all times.
