At the heart of Manor Wood is a secluded glade (forest clearing) where a small shed offers shelter and storage, a craft area covered by an awning for bodging,  lots of open space for camping and sitting round campfires. To one side there's a small young orchard planted in 2014 with cox apple, comice pear, stella cherry, victoria plum, asian pear, worchester pearman apple and almond.  All are well-protected against deer browsing.  A small pond located to one side is favoured  by wildlife in dry summers.  With the shed is a 12v solar panel with pump, battery pack and a 1000L water tank. Water can be collected from the shed roof and pumped to where needed.

Some of the wood, to the south, is younger broadleaved plantation with oak, cherry, ash and birch with woody shrubs including hazel, hawthorn, field maple and spindle. Further back there are magnificant mature oaks, between them are a variety of tall younger broadleves, including severel elms.


There is a right of way at all times and for all purposes over the access from the road into the wood where a track winds its way to the central glade.


North is a hedgebank, east at the north end is a shallow ditch - further south the ditch is sharper, south is the road and west a hedgebank.
