Ganges Wood was originally a flat area of open grassland divided by Link Road. Compartment A has been planted as a native broadleaf woodland with wide rides and a central open glade. The southern and western boundaries have mature hedges whilst the northern boundary borders gardens. The wood's name, Ganges Wood, was chosen by the local community to reflect the village's connection with HMS Ganges, a naval training base.
