Bailey's Wood is one of Manchester's few remaining semi-natural ancient woodlands. The Wood runs through a steep inaccessible ravine, which has allowed it to develop untended for many years. A variety of butterfly species can be seen in spring, and the wood plays host to birds such as greater spotted woodpecker, treecreeper and nuthatch. Bailey's Wood is a regional site of biological importance, and provides a valuable environmental education resource for local schools.
