Adjacent to the World of Wedgwood you will find Hem Heath woods. Why not take advantage of our free car parking facilities and explore this beautiful woodland area before delving into the history and heritage of Wedgwood at the World of Wedgwood.
At 100 acres (that’s about the size of 150 football pitches!), Hem Heath Woods is one of the largest woodlands on the edges of Stoke-on-Trent. As you stroll along the network of paths, you’ll see a wide range of trees, including oak, ash, cherry, sycamore and beech.
While you explore, keep your eyes open for woodland birds such as the nimble-footed nuthatch, which can scramble up and down tree bark. Closer to the ground, look for delicate woodland wildflowers and enjoy the gentle flutter of butterflies.
The woods are all managed as a publicly accessible nature reserve by Staffordshire Wildlife Trust.
