Forty Green is a small hamlet in the Parish of Penn, just a couple of miles from Beaconsfield. It is surrounded by ancient beech woodlands, grazing pasture and quiet country lanes, giving it a wonderful feeling of seclusion.
This trail passes through a wildflower meadow which is a blaze of colour in early summer, with an abundance of interesting plants and butterflies. You are also likely to see many different birds along the way, with the possibility (depending on the season) of Bramblings, Siskins, Nuthatches, Treecreepers, Blackcaps, Red Kites, Buzzards and Willow Warblers to name but a few. There are bluebells in the beech woods in the spring.
