Victory Wood connects two ancient woodlands, Blean Wood and Ellenden planted in 2005 to mark the 200th anniversary of Britain’s victory at the Battle of Trafalgar.  It was part of the Woodland Trust's, along with partners, programme to commemorate the Battle to highlight the role trees played in it by planting 33 new woodlands. It is a broadleaved woodland, 346 acres, and various features related to the battle have been created, such as sculptures and groves that represent each ship in the British fleet. Bluebells, grassland, and impressive views are surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
