Activities, Advice & Management

Advice and Management

As a result of knowledge gained from over 300 years of ownership of our woodlands we can offer a management and advice service to existing and potential woodland owners. This can include grant applications, management plan writing, tree planting, harvesting plans and timber marketing.

To find out more about our woodland management service please contact the estate office and ask for the Woodland Operations Manager –Jonathan Plowe, or email

Other Activities

A large block of woodland used to form part of the USAAF WW11 air base of Grafton Underwood and contains remains of buildings, air raid shelters, bomb dumps and miles of concrete roads.

Boughton woodlands headquarters

It’s these remains that are used by war gamers, car rallies, running events, educational activities and other events. We are always happy to consider other uses of the woodland if we consider they would fit into the existing management of the woodland
