Fans of Bacton Woods may be disappointed to hear that the woodland hotspot will be partially closed this autumn to carry out necessary works.

The work will compromise of felling and thinning operations, and will begin in late October, running through until Christmas.

These dates may alter for operational reasons, but the public will be kept informed of any changes.

Councillor Maggie Prior, North Norfolk District Council Cabinet Member for Leisure, said: “Bacton Woods is enormously popular with a wide range of people and we work hard with the Forestry Commission to keep it in good condition.

“These temporary, partial closures will ensure the ongoing health of the woodland and we thank the public for bearing with us while these vital works are carried out.”

The work will be carried out in sections, which will be cordoned of a portion at a time. The majority of the site will still be open to the public throughout the work.
