Once the haunt of wolves, lynx, Wild boars and brown bears, centuries of axe, fire and saw have reduced the forest to less than one per cent of its natural range.

But even today the remnants are still the largest area of continuous old forests in Britain and one of the wildest regions in Western Europe. These wild woods still harbour many of the original species of birds and animals specially adaptd to the habitat, some like the Scottish crossbill are found nowhere else in the world.

Home also for wildcat, red deer, crested tit, osprey, golden eagle and many more. This is the story of life in the great wood its majesty, its near extinction and its future.
