Bearsted Woodland Trust (BWT) protects and maintains 26 acres of woodland and meadow, restoring and enhancing a natural habitat for animals and plants and providing a place of recreation for visitors. There are a wide variety of English native trees, information boards to help identify wildlife and special gates and gentle paths for wheelchairs, baby buggies or electric scooters. Visitors are asked to respect the habitat and wildlife and to contact BWT if they witness incidents where this is not the case. 

BWT presented its new range of merchandise on its stand at the Bearsted and Thurnham Carnival and Fayre, held on Bearsted Village Green in June 2022. Pictured with the new range, featuring Christmas cards, a 2023 calendar and note cards, are (l-r) Barbara Long, Editor of BWT newsletter The Woodlander, and Chris Street, BWT Membership Secretary.
