This short video explains the growth and development of the Boston Woods from its inception in 1999 until 2012.

In 2001 the Boston Woods Trust was formed to takev over the management of Westgate Wood from the Woodland Trust. It went on to expand that site to include the wildflower  meadow, the Oak Wood and Jenny's Wood.

Grange Wood and Beech Wood were also planted.

This follows the further development of the project with the extension of Beech Wood to include Pioneer Wood and the Beech Wood Green Burial site.

In 2019 two enthusiastic photographers compiled short videos incorporating drone footage of the woods. These have been included in this update on the project

Twenty years after the Boston Woods Trust was formed we started a pictorial review of the woods. This was updated in 2023 to include the third stage of the project with the formation of Dion's Wood Nature Reserve.
