Swinn Wood

February, 2019

Swinn Wood, Lincolnshire, England


Swinn Wood is a small nature reserve managed by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust.  Situated close to the market town of Alford the wood is an ideal place for a walk or picnic if you enjoy the peace and quiet.  There is limited parking by the road so park with care. The wood is directly by the road and is gated so you will not be able to access with a vehicle.  There are no facilities here so bear that in mind when you visit but if you like the peace and tranquility then this is a great place for an outing.  The woods are full of birds and animals, even in February you can see hares, pheasants and blue tits.

The wood is an easy walk through the wide paths with plenty of room for picnics, there are seven ponds if you like to see life on the water.  It is a beautiful spot, ideal for a relaxing walk.  If you fancy a quick drink or meal after there is a fabulous pub around the corner in Aby – The Railway Tavern.

Ideal for:

  • solo travellers
  • couples
  • picnics
  • short walks
