Moore Abbey Wood (Page 1)

Along with a canal, rail track and river, just on the edge of Monasterevin Town there is this little treasure called Moore Abbey Wood. The wood was especially beautiful on the brilliant sunny May evening when I took these photos. I cannot say how big in area this wood is but, it would easily take you an hour to walk through every path. The majority of the trees are straight young Beech and reach at least 60 feet and it's possible to wander about anywhere as you enjoy the the singing of the birds. There is a car park which could possibly take 20 cars and is rarely full. So, if you find yourself in the area, you could do worse than spend an hour enjoying the natural beauty of Moore Abbey Wood.
NB: I still have to get photos of Moore Abbey itself...stay tuned!
