In a quiet rural position with limited parking, there were 37 woodland specialist plant species noted throughout these partly coniferised ancient woods in the pre-restoration survey completed in 2003 with many of those extending further around the wood as the restoration process continues. Three streams traverse the site and there are a number of springs providing floristically rich areas amongst the conifer plantations. A large area of broadleaf woodland separates the two plantations and provides a lighter and more attractive area to walk in as well as presenting a vision of how the wood will look when restoration is nearing completion.
