Description

Sence Valley Forest Park is located between Ibstock and Heather in North West Leicestershire, and within the National Forest, England. It is situated on the site of a former open cast mine where, between 1982 and 1996, eight million tonnes of coal were extracted by opencast mining. The 60-hectare site has since been transformed by tree planting and the creation of lakes, and is now managed by Forestry England. The River Sence flows through the park. A series of paths provides access to a picnic area and the various fishing opportunities. There are also toilets and parking facilities for both the able bodied and the disabled.
