Langley Vale Wood

The Woodland Trust purchased the land known as Langley Vale Wood in 2014 for a World War One centenary project. During that war this area was used for army training with rifle ranges, trenches and a gas training school. 180,000 trees have been planted on the site. Various features have been created:- Oak markers honouring all the British Warships sunk in battle and sailors lost, A memorial “Witness” made from 35 pieces of oak carved with words from seven poets of the time. It is 4meters in diameter and 6 meters tall, and “The Regiment of Trees” which commemorates Lord Kitchener’s inspection of 20,000 volunteer troops on this site. It consists of twelve figures carved in sandstone by Patrick Walls standing amongst a mix of broadleaf trees.
