Our mission

A visit to Heritage Wood provides the perfect setting for you to spend time with your memories, to remember happy times and to enjoy making new memories. A moment of contemplation and escapism.

Our intention is to keep the woodlands appearance as natural as possible for you to enjoy when you visit.

This natural appearance takes constant maintenance all year round. Thanks to your sponsorship this enables us to keep the wood looking tidy and nurtured for generations to come.

Just south of the Peak District Market town of Ashbourne nestled in unspoilt Derbyshire countryside

The birth of a Woodland

Born out of the love of nature, and a local farming family looking for a special place to plant and dedicate trees. Robert and Wendy Morley planted the first trees in 1988 these have grown into the woodland that today is Heritage Wood. The woodland is still owned and lovingly maintained by their son and daughter-in-law, Tim and Jill.

The woodland remains a special place for the Morleys' and also their extended Heritage Wood family of sponsors.
