Blacker Wood

"Hawk runs through Blacker Woods"

These woods were mentioned in the Doomsday Book and contain an abundance of wildlife including Foxes, Badgers and woodpeckers to name just a few. It is possible to break your journey at Cuckoos Nest and enjoy a walk through the woods. When the railway was built it severed a section of the woods from the rest, this is now railway property, and whilst on most days the train will speed past the woods, on some special events the train will stop here for the kids to undertake activities, such as the Teddy Bears Picnic and Easter Egg Hunt.
