What to see: The name Alder Moors comes from the alder trees which dominate the ancient woodland. Coppicing has encouraged the growth of the ground flora. The wood has ash, hawthorn and willow trees. In springtime the woodland floor bursts out with wildflowers such as bluebells, marsh marigolds, primroses and wood anenomes.
