The Sunday School Wood is situated in the heart of the village of Combe St. Nicholas. It is a one acre community nature reserve located next to St. Nicholas Church. It can be entered from the churchyard near the church tower. There is a path and steps that lead to Green Lane and out to Combe Wood.
The Wood was formerly part of the Vicarage garden. In 1995 a number of trees, in addition to the mature trees at the north end, were planted by the Sunday School children, parents and helpers. Much of the Wood became overgrown but was cleared in 2003. Since then approximately 500 shrubs, wild flowers and 5000 bulbs have been planted, bird and bat boxes erected and the Wood regularly maintained.
Additional pages on the history and development of the Wood and other matters will follow in due course.
