A visit to Sneaton Forest is a memorable experience. The Forest offers a wealth of attractions to the visitor who explores it's network of paths. Thick plantations of conifers encourage a thriving population of birds and wildflowers. The Hermitage, often used as a shelter from the rain, was carved from a boulder has two wishing chairs upon it. But for many, Falling Foss, in which May Beck plunges 30ft down a steep slope, is the icing on the cake. It's a spectacular sight especially after a period of rain. Visit in the late October and you will be greeted by a gorgeous array of colours from the falling leaves.
