Lodge Wood lies to the east of Calverley Wood and has the Leeds Liverpool Canal as its northeast boundary. Much of the wood resides on a slope leading down to the canal. The woodland contains a number of different tree species which include sycamore, beech, sweet chestnut, oak and birch. On the upper slopes of the wood there is a dense under storey of holly with climbing corydalis in the glades.
