General Information

The Plantation is a semi-natural linear woodland extending from Goring Hall to the seafront. Dominated by Holm oak (Quercus ilex) in the south and Sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus) in the rest, the shrub and ground layers are limited.

Selective thinning and new planting by Goring and Ilex Volunteer Group have enhanced the species diversity which now includes:

  • English Oak (Quercus robur)
  • Ash (Fraxinus excelsior)
  • Hazel (Corylus avellana)
  • Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna)
