Salcey Forest lies a few miles South of Northampton and provides a network of footpaths suitable for both young and old to
explore. It is managed by the Forestry Commission, and is well maintained with numerous information boards and notices
which provide visitors with details of the trees, wildlife and habitat that exists within the Forest.
Car parking facilities are available at two main access points. The first is just a couple of miles South of Quinton, on the left
hand side of the road a short way into the Forest. To reach the second car park, continue South to the Forest Road crossroads, turn
left, and the car part is about another mile on the right.
The footpaths have been named after three different types of Woodpecker's, which can all be found in the Forest. As well as other
types of birds, deer roam the Forest, and during the summer a wide variety of butterflies can be found.
