The Flagship Diamond Wood is a newly created woodland in Leicestershire, UK. Covering 186 hectares (460 acres), it is the centrepiece of a wide-ranging Jubilee Project by The Woodland Trust to mark the 2012 Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. The site incorporates a former opencast coal mine which now has a newly created lake, as well as former arable land and 7 hectares (17 acres) of existing ancient woodland and old hedgerows. Situated between the villages of Normanton le Heath, Heather and Ravenstone, and close to Coalville and Ashby de la Zouch, it is in the middle of the National Forest.
