"We curse them and try to kill them, but in the past most of our common weeds were grown on purpose because they were useful; yes, even Ground Elder! Learn how to love your weeds and get your own back at the same time".

Find out more about the interesting plants we term 'weeds', many of which can be found in our parkland.

    Howe Park Wood - park.jpg

    Howe Park is probably the woodland mentioned in the Domesday Survey of 1086. Parts of it may be rare surviving fragments of the 'wildwood' that covered the whole of lowland Britain after the last Ice Age, 6-11,000 years ago.

    There is a café at Howe Park Wood serving cakes, drinks and cold foods.
