Success stories

Across the Low Weald and Downs, the Lost Woods project is working with landowners to restore our ancient woodlands.  

These precious habitats are the richest and most complex on land in the UK, and they’re home to more threatened species than any other. But their vital ecosystems are under threat.

Through working in partnership with owners to help improve their woodland management, the project is supporting wildlife to return and ensuring woodlands are protected for future generations.

Discover some of the woods that are thriving today, after support from the project – all made possible thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
