I am interested in why you say that. Do you have any actual justification?
Which time period are we rewinding the clock to?
As far as I know, post ice age, it became a deciduous forest.
Then neolithic man cleared all of the natural forests in England*, including the high ground in Yorkshire. It became blanket bog as a direct result of man's influence.
*Which does make this idea of 'ancient woodland' a load of old testicles.
This is on the advertising leaflet but does not appear to be on the web.
Hope you enjoyed my opinionated rant!
“Ancient woodland” has nothing to do with Neolithic times. It means an area that has been woodland continuously since before a date a few hundred years ago.
