Stoney Wood is Wirksworth’s Millennium woodland planted in the area recovered from Stonecroft Quarry. The land on which the wood is planted was donated by Tarmac Ltd to Wirksworth Town Council. The original planting was started by Tarmac but later sections were planted by local adults and children in a project inspired by the Foret Giorno woodland near Wirksworth’s twin town of Die in France. In recent years further improvements have taken place and the wood is a regular location for events in the town.
