Lumb Brook Valley is a delightful site with several distinctive woodland areas including Fords Rough an area of Ancient Semi Natural Woodland The Dingle with a mix of conifers broadleaves and a stand of mature beech trees and Julia's Wood which is a young woodland of native broadleaves. There are good displays of bluebells wild garlic and other wildflowers in the springtime particularly in Fords Rough. The valley has surfaced and well used footpaths linked to the adjacent housing estates and roads.
