This community woodland of approximately 100 ha is located above New Marske and has achieved Local Nature Reserve status. It was mainly planted in the 18th century to provide a cash crop, and extended in the early 20th century with a resultant tree mix that is predominantly coniferous. There is a good network of paths throughout the wood, and a new footpath access to the wood has been created which runs from Quarry Lane to the ruined winding house. There are also areas of deer habitat, and pine martens have been seen in the wood.
