Coppice Park, Nottingham

Coppice Park is one of Nottingham’s oldest parks, next door to St Ann’s Allotments. The Coppice was a great wood which was given to the city as a mark of favour by King James I in 1615. The name comes from the practice of “coppicing”, a woodland management technique of repeatedly felling trees and allowing them to regrow in order to create a sustainable supply of timber – in this case for fuel and construction work around Nottingham.  It was made a recreation ground in 1904.

I took a walk around there a few months ago. There’s a small playground area and then some open space bordered by woodland on one side. I did take a walk through part of the woodland but didn’t stray too far from the main road.

It’s a nice space but not too much to see. You can find some more photos here.
