Entrance to Woodhouse Copse

Woodhouse Copse is a wood owned and managed by the Graeme Kirk. It is located on the north east side of the Isle of Wight between Whippingham and Wootton. It is 18 hectares in area.

The wood is bordered to the west and north by open land and to the east by Palmer's Brook, which becomes more and more marshy as it winds and slows on its way to King's Quay and the sea to the north.

As of 2007 the area had only recently been acquired by the Graeme Kirk, and management of it had only just started. There is very poor access for the public and only a couple of paths run through the woods. It is a plantation on an ancient woodland site and is being slowly cleared of non-native conifers by Greame Kirk, friends and associates. All help is welcome. It is a location where red squirrels live.
