Boxers Wood sits on the of top and to the side of the Netherne plateau, part of the North Downs chalklands. Lime has been taken from the woods in the distance past the workings now forming an interesting hollow at the northern tip. The site is well-wooded with sycamore, birch, oak, ash, Scots pine and a few yew trees. Other areas are coppice and a wildlife haven. To the east the wood slopes down to meet the open fields where there are views across neighbouring farmland.

It's rare to find such a woodland inside the M25 and by open farmland. The village of Netherne-on-the-Hill is based on the old hospital buildings and grounds and is a much sort-after location; the village is surrounded by open countryside.

Bluebells abound here and are such a delight in spring and they do suggest it has been woodland for many generations. Most of the wood is designated as semi-natural ancient woodland. The open area to the west, the site of the old water treatment works and now removed, is perfect for woodland activities, camping, woodworking, siting a forest store (subject to relevant permissions), or even, for example, archery.

Access is directly off the public highway through the white painted field gate through which is the hard track suitable for vehicles. There is a public footpath pf by the eastern boundary and along the southside.
