The steep sides of Paraker Wood Pocket Park rise up from the coast as part of the Seabrook Valley, which leads from the sea up to Cheriton, and to the high fields which border it on its northern side.

Owned by Shepway District Council, the wood is managed with the assistance of the White Cliffs Countryside Project, and there are walks through the wood on both public footpaths and permissive paths (thanks to the Ministry of Defence).

There are steps leading up to the higher footpaths, which become very muddy in winter. An excellent spot for birdlife, nightingales can sometimes be heard in the woods on summer evenings, while green woodpeckers, nuthatches and warblers are more common visitors.

Easy access information

This park and open space contains uneven trails, un-surfaced or narrow pathways. Also, there are width restricting features, such as stiles and narrow gaps making it difficult for visitors with pushchairs and/or wheelchairs to access some parts of the site.
