Fenside Woods offers peaceful woodland walks alongside the river Witham with flat all-weather paths, perfect for family strolls and accessible visits.

Look out for a trail of wooden carvings dotted along the woodland paths, bringing Boston’s local nature to life. The park is a collection of two areas of woodland: Grange Wood and Beech Wood.

The site can be accessed from Fenside Road, along the west side of the river Witham, a short mile north of Boston’s town centre. Visitors will first reach Grange Wood, a well-established area of greenery planted in 2002, with a range of native deciduous trees and all-weather paths to enjoy.

Travelling a little further along Fenside Road brings you to a 23-acre area of woodland to the northwest of Boston, incorporating Beech Wood, Pioneer Wood, and Beech Wood Green Burial.

These peaceful green spaces can be enjoyed by car or by taking a short scenic walk along the west side of the river Witham from the Grand Sluice. Beech Wood features a stunning selection of trees, turning from glorious green in the summer to a picturesque golden into the autumn months, making this a wonderful spot to enjoy, no matter what the time of year.

Dotted with picnic benches and scenic walkways, Fenside Woods is the ideal spot for an afternoon picnic or evening stroll. Following the carefully tailored trail of paths leading to a pond and small amphitheatre spread through the wildflower meadow, you can experience Boston’s peaceful wildlife.

If you’re visiting by car, there are two dedicated car parks at Beech Wood and the Green Burial Site.

This site has been developed and maintained by Boston Woods Trust.
