A typical High Weald ancient woodland with spectacular wood anemone and bluebell displays in spring. A small stream, known as Lady Brook, flows along the site's western boundary. Two public footpaths and a good network of rides and paths. In 2013 the wood was awarded funding from SITA Trust through the Landfill Communities Fund towards key management works. The grant contributed to the annual ride-side coppicing programme which is helping to create a more diverse woodland which will benefit a wide range of wildlife.
