This is one of eight blocks of woodland scattered along the south bank of the River Wear. This is by far the biggest and is classified as an Ancient Semi-Natural Woodland. It contains mature oak ash beech and sycamore along with some Scots pine. Most of these woods are located in James Steel Park alongside the River Wear and all are in a heavily urbanised area so they are all very well used by local people and informal public access is a key feature on all sites.
