Just as you come to the top of the road into the College Valley, stop and look to your right. Here is a small oak wood planted in 2005 to commemorate the valley’s connection back to Lord Collingwood and the Battle of Trafalgar. This is Trafalgar wood.It is an easy climb to the top of the hill ( Whitehill ) with spendid views across the valley. This can also be the start of the walk up to Ringchesters and Elsdonburn ( Hillfort trail).

This picture is taken from within the wood looking north out of the valley.
