Collyweston Great Wood and Easton Hornstocks is a 151.5 hectare biological Site of Special Scientific Interest north of King's Cliffe in Northamptonshire.[1][2] The site is a National Nature Reserve[3] and a Nature Conservation Review site, Grade I.[4]

These woods have ash, lime and sessile oak, together with wild service-tree, which is an indicator of ancient woodland. The ground flora is very rich, including locally unusual plants such as lily-of-the-valley, wood spurge, great wood-rush, violet helleborine and columbine.[5] Animals found in the woods include slowworm, red kite and great spotted woodpecker.[6].

Historically these woods were once part of Rockingham Forest.[7] and they were continuous with Bedford Purlieus woodland until the mid 19th Century.[8] An area of the centre of Easton Hornstocks was quarried and an area within Collyweston Great Wood was deforested to build RAF Collyweston.[9]

A permit from Natural England is required for access.[10]
