The small village of Wykeham in North Yorkshire lies on the outskirts of the seaside resort Scarborough, within easy driving distance of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and various long-distance hiking trails that criss-cross the Wolds to the south of the village.
Wykeham is located just a 7-mile distance from bustling Scarborough centre, but its tranquil rural location is ideal for a relaxing meander into the countryside. The Forestry Commission encourages visitors and locals alike to make the most of the beautiful Wykeham Forest, where trails lead through an established pine and conifer woodland that is used for research rather than clear-fell forestry.
Hikers prize the views from Raptor and High Wood Brow at Troutdale and the upper part of the River Derwent, while cyclists enjoy a ride along the pleasantly shady Moor to Sea Cycle Trail that traverses Wykeham Forest. The Forestry Commission uses the forest to investigate how woodlands in the 21st century can be best managed. While maintaining tree cover and using part of the woodland for timber production, the forest is also used to enhance and promote bio-diversity and supports tree nurseries that supply young trees to other parts of Britain’s woodlands.
If you were trundling along on your bicycle on the Moor to Sea Cycle trail and were suddenly confronted with an oak, a conifer or birch tree moving rapidly towards you courtesy of a tree-felling exercise, your resulting injuries would become the subject of a personal injury claim against the negligent party, quite possibly the Forestry Commission or the contractor carrying out the works. An accident claim in Wykeham is the way to win the compensation you deserve.
