Exploring Rodd Wood

Sidney and Mary Nolan wished to preserve the landscape of Rodd Farm, converted it to organic status and delighted in winning prizes for their Welsh Black cattle. The farm is now the setting for the charity that Sidney founded and welcomes artists and visitors alike to enjoy the land as well as Sidney's paintings and studio. The ancient woodland has been managed by coppicing for centuries, ensuring that it is still home to a diverse flora, including wood anemone, enchanter's nightshade, sweet woodruff, primrose, bluebells, archangel, wild garlic, violets and early purple orchids.

Pick up a map and a list of species to spot on your walk from The Gallery. Walk and parking are free.

The Rodd is on the Kington to Presteigne road (B4355). There is plenty of free parking. The Studio, Gallery and WC facilities are accessible for visitors who use a wheelchair. Please do phone in advance to discuss your access requirements.
