Geology and Ecology of Ecclesall Woods

Rather than boil down and repeat the volume of work on Ecclesall Woods, I recommend:, where there is a downloadable workbook on Ecclesall Woods. Written by Peter Machan in 2005, commissioned by FEW, it is very good. Only the personal details are out-of-date.

Prof. Melvyn Jones, Joan Jones and Bob Warburton, authors and illustrator of A History of Ecclesall Woods, unpublished report for Sheffield City Council, 2008. A Flora of Ecclesall Woods, ed. W. Smyllie. Published 2006 by FEW Common Species in Sheffield's Woods, ed. Bill Smyllie and Derek Whiteley. Published by FEW, 2008. Both the last are booklets available from the Woodland Discovery Centre.
