A young woodland that has been planted on the site of a former hospital and mirrors the local beech woods. The local community was involved in the design and some of the mature trees that were on the hospital site have been retained. These provide a contrast with the more newly planted trees and some areas have been left unplanted to create parkland. This wood links with Kingwood Common and the woods beyond.
