The Woods for People project (led by the Woodland Trust) has created a UK-wide provisional inventory of accessible woodland.
As a result of the information gathered on accessible woodland, the Woodland Trust has undertaken a major analysis of woodland access provision and deficit across the UK. This project, named Space for People, has used the accessible woodland data from the Woods for People project to develop targets for increasing woodland access.
Further information on the Woodland Trust is available at www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/
