    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 ran by Grounds. The café is operating a takeaway only service until further notice.
