Keeds Wood (full/official name Keeds Wood and The Brake) is a beautiful 18 acre woodland situated in Long Ashton, North Somerset not far from Bristol. The woodland is classified as ancient, semi-natural and partly ancient replanted, originating from 1600 AD or earlier. Mature beech trees dominate it, with ash, cherry, Norway maple and some Corsican pine.
