Set in a steep-sided valley with great views out to the east and the North York Moors and Vale of York. There is a mixture of ancient woodland and some more recently planted areas set amidst dramatic rocky outcrops. The wood is set on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park within the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and provides a different environment to the surrounding open moorland. Not the most easily accessible wood for casual visitors but it is crossed by footpaths that are generally used by long distance walkers.


  • Broadleaved woodland
