Furzedown Farm Conservation area was founded in 1970 by Deryk & Jill Noble. It has since been the subject of an ongoing conservation project, encouraging diversity through proper management. Sharing the woodland with the many species of invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals are our bees, which benefit from the diverse range of wild flowers and flowering trees, many of which have been planted to purposefully benefit bees and butterflies. On a sunny summers day you can hear the hum of the bees as they forage the tree tops and meadow flowers present in the woodland.
Today the woodland is looked after by The Noble brothers and Sisters and their partners. It is currently the subject of a ten year management plan, for which a grant was awarded by the Forestry Commission.
