The Council is responsible for Kennel Wood, Higg Lane, which is an ancient woodland. The Council is part of the DerwentWISE project. The project is currently managing the wood for a three year period. It is intended to re-instate natural species of plants and remove non native species encouraging flora and fauna. They are also carrying out tree management which is improving the canopy of the wood. It is well worth a visit in Spring to see the display of bluebells - a great photo opportunity
