This tranquil site is a mix of ancient woodland, which cloaks the long, narrow valley of Ridley Gill, and established new native woodland planted in 1992, where medieval farmsteads once stood. The wood is brimming with birdlife, and contains open grassland, wetlands, small woodland ponds and a grazed wildflower meadow as well as the extensive woodland, accessible by approximately 5km of unsurfaced paths from the car park.
