View across Honiton and the Otter Valley from Roundball Hill  


Roundball Wood is situated on the northern slope of Roundball Hill and has a magnificent view over Honiton, the Otter Valley and the Blackdown Hills. The wood is managed by the Town Council as a community woodland and nature reserve. The wood is centuries old and although in its long history it has been used for grazing cattle its boundaries have not changed. As a result the wood is in its natural state described as semi-ancient woodland.

The wood is managed by a small group of voluntary wardens with the support of Honiton Town Council. 

The Roundball Wood Wardens produce a regular blog on whats happening at Roundball.
