Bierley Hall Wood
Bierley Hall Wood is situated in a shallow valley in an area of mixed housing and industrial use. The southern end of the wood has some connection to semi open country. The site is the former landscaped ground of large house, little trace of the house or landscaping is now visible.
Despite the site belonging in the 18th and 19th centuries to theRichardsons, a family of keen gardeners and botanists there are no known records of management of the site. It is known that the Hall was demolished in1968, and little appears to have been done apart from felling related to Dutch Elm Disease, and the planting of a block of new woodland, both were done in the early 1980’s
