4.3 : Butts View & Butts Road

Across South Church Street and along Butts View, leads to a squeeze and a secluded path. Along this path you hear the cries of the rooks and begin entering woodland. A low ‘wall’ of woven tree roots and the deep leaf litter under the beech trees catches the eye. A tarmaced path ascends steeply uphill - the Butts, so called as long ago it was used for archery practice. Cross the path and head down through the wood. Here holly, laurel and yew give an evergreen backcloth. Yews are native trees whose wood is heavy and elastic - traditionally used for long bows and spears. At the end of winter there are drifts of snowdrops and over wintering herbs on the woodland floor.
