Woodwalls House

Woodwalls is a smallholding of 12 acres, situated in Dorset and designated as a Site of Nature Conservation Interest.The land has been farmed since Neolithic times and local history suggests that Woodwalls was the site of the village school during the 17th century. For the past ten years the owners have been managing the land with the emphasis on conservation. The aim is to provide a natural habitat containing features to encourage the regeneration of plants, insects, birds and animals which were once common in the area. A hedge was planted in 1997 to replace one which was removed thirty years previously and a new coppice has been planted. Species-rich hay meadows have regenerated over the last 20 years without the addition of any wild flower seed.
