Welcome to Tocil Wood and Meadow LNR, an ancient oak woodland with swamp and wet meadow which has existed for many centuries. This nature reserve is owned by Coventry City Council and managed by Warwickshire Wildlife Trust.
Historic evidence shows the wood to be at least 400 years old and archaeological earthworks within the wood date back to the first and second century AD. More recent features include ridge and furrow left over from mediaeval agriculture.
A very rare picture found in excavation around TOCIL woods depicts a day in daily life of these inhabitants. This picture is posted here exclusively for the readers of this blog.
