Crawford's Wood is located by the village of Aspull near Wigan. It is an attractive establishing woodland which was planted with mixed broadleaved trees in the winter of 1996/97.

South facing with a mixture of woodland and open, unsurfaced grassy paths, the woodland links via footpaths and permissive bridleway with adjacent mature woodland, the nearby Haigh Hall Country Park, Leeds Liverpool Canal, and Lady Mabel's Wood. The wood is popular with dog walkers and ramblers and due to its urban fringe location.
