 Some of our best loved reserves are our woodlands and one of the most accessible is Seller's Wood in Bulwell.
This ancient coppiced woodland covers more than 14 hectares and is nationally designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) as a result of its wildlife value. The woodland is managed by the Trust in partnership with Nottingham City Council and one of its most interesting features is its diversity of trees and plants. This is partly due to the wood's age, but also as a result of its situation above two different types of bedrock. The woodland has areas dominated by oak and birch as well as sections where ash and wych elm are more common. The varied plant life also includes species which indicate the woodland's ancient origins such as early-purple orchid, wood anemone and yellow archangel.
The wood has a long history of human use and the most obvious man-made features are a series of large ponds created by digging for clay.  It is believed that some of the ponds were test pits for the old Sankey clay plant pot factory which was located close by.
Seller's Wood is well worth a visit at any time of year but a visit in the spring will be rewarded with a wonderful range of birdsong and an opportunity to enjoy the bluebells.
