Know before you go
From the entrance area a ride runs south-east following the contour around the edge of the wood. This gives views across to Romers Wood and provides an idea of the character of the reserve. Unfortunately most of the rest of the reserve is inaccessible due to the heavy growth of scrub and bramble.
There is no wheelchair access at this reserve.

About the reserve
This reserve lies on a distinctive steep-sided bowl at the head of the valley of the Cadmore Brook. The upper and western parts of the wood are considered to be ancient semi-natural woodland. Many fine semi-mature oaks and ash trees as well as a good variety of other species including field maple and goat willow occur here. Bird life includes woodpeckers and several pairs of both jackdaw and nuthatch.
