Deadwood Plain was one of the first parts of the Great Wood to be cut down, supposedly getting its name from the resulting number of dead tree stumps.


Safety – This walk has no steep climbs, however the path can become muddy and slippery near the summit underneath the acacia trees. There is also a sheer drop down to the sea on the coastal side of the Post Box.
