Someone local, possibly with the Broadstairs or St Peter’s Post Code area CT10, to shadow the Secretary with a view to developing an in-depth knowledge of  Mockett’s Wood throughout the seasons and to help with a  minimal amount of paperwork.


Disguised by the grounds of a doctor’s surgery and adjacent to the Co-op car park, people are uncertain as to the size and layout of this two acre Woodland. The entrance to the right leads along a short pathway to 3 granite posts which mark its boundary. From here, where wild cherry trees have grown to an unusual height, three paths lead northwards to either of two exits, each one onto the ancient bridleway. Turn left for St Peter’s churchyard or right for Northdown Road.
Entering the wood, the first thing that becomes apparent is its tranquillity and peace, promoting both a physical and mental feeling of relief from the stress of a busy lifestyle.

You may then ask yourself - how did this woodland habitat in an otherwise urban locality come about?

As a conservation group we were encouraged in our research by a grant from the Local Heritage Initiative administered by the Countryside Agency who remarked, "There is no doubt that Mockett's Wood is an important natural heritage feature".

Please keep to the paths which run the length of the wood. Any widening of the paths will result in a loss of valuable habitat which is the whole purpose of the wood's preservation.
