Long Description:
Peter's Wood, Minster, Boscastle.

NT sign at Peter's Wood, Minster. From the car park in Boscastle the path leads to (if you continue past the sign) St Juliot's church, made famous by Thomas Hardy. Apparently a favourite walk of Thomas hardy and Emma Gifford. Across the footbridge leads to Peter's Wood, and then on to Minster church.

"This is an area of mature oak coppice, rich in lichens and mosses. It used to be heavily coppiced, a form of woodland management rarely practised now.

At intervals of between 10 and 20 years, the trees were cut back to within 1ft of the ground, and the material sold for a variety of purposes: pit props, fencing, firewood, charcoal, hurdles and bark for tanning."
