Believed to be the woodland mentioned in the Domesday Survey of 1086. Parts of this wood may be rare surviving fragments of the 'wildwood' that covered the whole of lowland Britain after the last Ice Age. The wood supports a wide range of flora and fauna including many butterflies, birds, and plant species. It is managed in a traditional way to continue to provide good continuing habitat.
