Located on a steep hillside the woodland is dominated by Ash and Elm trees and contains a number of ancient woodland indicator species. It has a fantastic bluebell carpet in May and has a very remote and wild feel to it at any time of year.

The heathland is much flatter than the woodland and has large areas of gorse with occasional patches of heather. It is full of small grassy clearings or glades which are great places to see butterflies and wildflowers in summer.

Wildlife Designations: Partly a Site of Nature Conservation Importance (SNCI).
