Wall Wood was one of Hatfield Forest's 'purlieu woods', which were associated with the Forest but not entirely part of it. It has many ancient coppiced trees and, in the more open parts, good ground flora – carpets of dog's mercury, patches of bluebells and a scattering of primroses.


Turn south off the B1256 (Bishop's Stortford–Takeley) in Takely Street, about 3 miles east of M11 junction 8. SatNav: CM22 7UG.

Buses run to Takeley Street from Bishop's Stortford and Braintree/Dunmow: get off at Green Man PH.

Accessible at all times.
