Welcome to our site!



Whether you are a Dog Walker, Bird Watcher, Rambler or Nature Lover. Friends of Beacon Wood welcomes you to one of the South Easts best kept secrets.


Across the road from Bean village Post office  close to Bean Primary school in the heart of the local community and run by local volunteers Beacon wood is home to more than flora and Fauna.


Established as a country park in 1992 on the site of a disused claypit Beacon wood is now a thriving ecosystem home to an abundant range of wildlife and a popular retreat for local residents escaping the hussle and bustle of every day life.


We hope you enjoy our site and please remember we are always looking for volunteers, benefactors, spoters and walkers. You dont even need to lift a spade to help us. Send us a photo or just be a friend!
