The Millennium Wood is a small (one hectare) area of mixed woodland planted in 2000. It is just 300 metres from the Glenholm Centre and you are free to explore its many small paths. A clearing with two picnic tables within the woods is a super spot for a picnic.
Our younger (and young at heart) visitors should look closely as you explore the woods and you might find a number of model animals hidden in the trees. If you buy a map from the Glenholm Centre and identify them all you could win a prize!
The Millennium Wood was previously an area where sheep pens and an old sheep dip were situated. The dip has since been dismantled but an iron crossbar used for hanging wool bags still exists.
woodland was planted using a grant from the Government's
Scheme. A variety of tree species exist within the woods including birch,
hawthorn, sycamore, Norwegian spruce and Scots pine.
