Gipton Wood covers an area of about 8.5 hectares and is classified by English Nature as 'a plantation on ancient woodland site' (PAWS). The main tree species are oak, sycamore and beech. The wood is crossed by hard surface paths which provide a pleasant surface to walk on and also protect the wood from soil compaction and erosion. There are also the remains of an ancient 'D' shaped earthwork to the north-east dating from the late Bronze Age or Romano-British period (c.1000 BC ' 400 AD).
