On 23rd March 2019 we went for a family walk at Allens Field, South Ascot, having never been here before. We went on a Saturday lunchtime and did not see anyone else walking there, so it was very peaceful and we were able to enjoy seeing our first bees of the year and two bright yellow moths / butterflies.
Allens Field consists of woodland, wet woodland and grassland space. During our walk we just made up our own route to explore. There is a map in the car park to help guide you around the 9.5 hectare site and threw the woods there are trodden paths, bridges and boardwalks to follow.
We enjoyed discovering the woodland paths but the best bit for us was discovering the beautiful wooden sculptures at the site. Sadly during our visit in February 2023 we noticed a couple of the wooden sculptures had been spray-painted (and several mended) but they were still lovely to see and have photos with.
Allens Field is a designated Wildlife Site with birds, insects, mammals and fungi being seen on the site. A railway line borders part of the site.
Allens Field can be found at: Off Liddel Way, South Ascot, SL5 9UT. There is a free car park.
