Clare Glen

Armagh

Clare Glen can be described as a delightful walk along the banks of the River Cusher in County Armagh. Many of the trees in the wood are multistemmed and the wood may have been managed by coppicing in the past. Hazel is abundant, with oak, ash and wych elm over a stunning ground layer of wood anemone, wild garlic and bluebells, and several different species of orchid (when in season).
