Workman's Wood, Sheepscombe

Workman's Wood is a wood just to the east of the village of Sheepscombe, in the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire.

It is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

It is of particular importance as one of only three extant sites in Britain for the Red Helleborine Cephalanthera rubra, the others being Hawkley Warren in Hampshire and a site in the Chilterns in Buckinghamshire. A small colony of this plant grows in the centre of the wood. Netting is used to protect the plants from disturbance.
