Duncombe park

Duncombe Park became a National Nature Reserve in 1994 to protect the mature hardwood trees which are home to a large number of scarce wood- feeding beetles, and birds which feed on them. The reserve is managed by English Nature who record each tree, and over 2,000 oak, beech, lime and field maple saplings have been planted during the last 10 years creating a haven for wild life. The reserve is 'A refuge from the Wilde Woods which covered much of the country in the 16th century and most of the trees are over 250 years old. Some of England's oldest and tallest trees benefit from the protection. These great gnarled veterans with their dead and dying limbs, rot holes and hollow trunks are living treasures and part of our heritage'. There are waymarked walks, discovery trails and orienteering courses for all ages which explore the woodlands, river valley, meadows, woodland skyline and commercial forestry. In fact, its as near as you can get to that 18th century concept of Arcady - or an ideal rustic paradise.
The park is one of the best sites in Northern England to find illusive woodland birds including Lesser-spotted woodpecker and Hawfinch(above).
