Broxbourne Woods NNR

County: Hertfordshire

Main habitats: Woodland

Management: Although most NNRs are managed by Natural England, some are wholly or partly managed by other bodies approved under Section 35 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.

Hertfordshire County Council owns Broxbourne Wood and Bencroft Woodexternal link, while the Woodland Trust owns Hoddesdonpark Woodexternal link and Wormley Woodexternal link.

Each landowner manages their own woods, but in the context of the Broxbourne Woods NNR management partnership. This partnership involves Hertfordshire County Council, the Woodland Trust and the Hertfordshire Countryside Management Service, plus other stakeholders and adjacent landowners.

Further information about the NNR, its wildlife and how to visit can be found on the managing bodies' websites (see links above).
