Beyond the River Glade lies Whippendell Wood, which is well-known for once being used as a Star Wars filming location for The Phantom Menace. That movie hasn't held up very well, but the woods are still excellent to visit and we can see why George Lucas wanted to film there, they do have a romantic, mystic quality. Whippendell is an ancient wood and has been wooded since at least the early 17th century. If you're visiting the woods then keep an eye out for the line of Lime trees, which have run diagonally through the woods and have been there for more than 300 years.
