Elms Farm Wood was planted as an experimental woodland by the London Brick Company. The purpose of the experiment was to test how well different tree species would grow in the heavy clay soil of the Marston Vale. The woodland is currently unmanaged with no public access.
O&H Properties are now working with local stakeholders to enable an extension to SUSTRANS Cycle Route 51 through Elms Farm Wood. We are also working with Bedford Borough Council to help design a route through the wood for the proposed Bedford & Milton Keynes Waterway.
