Brook Wood is a small broadleaf woodland in the Sandymoor Valley. The area is becoming increasingly urbanised with new housing roads and facilities being built. The wood has a nice mix of mature broadleaves including lime oak hornbeam sweet and horse chestnut and there is a pond in the western half. There are several other Woodland Trust woodlands nearby and a surfaced footpath passes through the wood linking it to the wider network of open spaces and woodlands in the area.
