A prominent mature beech woodland, mixed with other deciduous species and bluebells which cover the site of former coal bell pits, overlooking Horsforth.

Woodland management geared towards conservation. A pollarded beech tree providing a standing deadwood habitat for invertebrates and birds

A gentle reminder of past human activity in the wood, coal mining using the bell pit technique to reach the coal seam under the ground. The mound represents the spoil created during the mining
