Yoesden Wood is managed by its owner who had a great time growing up in the wood imagining that they ruled their own kingdom. Many a happy day was spent in the glade in the middle of the wood. The wood is a wonderfully untouched wild place, peaceful and quiet. Red kites swirl overhead and wild orchids grow in the meadows around the woods. The wood must have been used by our ancestors as flint tools can be found at the base of the old beech trees.
Local artist Christine Clark was inspired to create the following glass panels by the colours of the trees and the countryside surrounding Yoesden Wood. Entering the work in the 2008 Special Woods Art Competition, Christine said:
"I decided that fused glass could depict the quality of the golden light of the beech trees and set about making a fused panel using copper foil for the trunk and yellow and brown medium and course frit for the leaves."
In the second panel Christine makes a kaleidoscopic impression of Yoesden Wood across the year:
Several public footpaths run through this wood.
