Westlaw Wood lies on the east side of the River Derwent Valley between Consett and Ebchester in County Durham. It is an Ancient Semi-natural Woodland and Site of Nature Conservation Importance.

Announcement: Due to sewage discharge Westlaw Wood is currently closed to the public until further notice. 

We are working with Northumbria Water and the Environment Agency to resolve this issue and hope to be able to reopen the site as soon as it’s safe to do so.

Thanks for your cooperation.
