A secluded, quaint patch of native woodland, Springfield Copse is set back from Strines Road, Marple. For such a small pocket of woodland, Springfield Copse is surprisingly rich in wildlife, and recently planted oak trees will provide extra habitat.

Approximately 400 metres of informal paths and two footbridges allow access within the copse. Much of the path network is on fairly steep slopes and uneven ground. The paths are not surfaced and consist of natural grass and unmodified earth. They can get muddy and slippery when wet.
