Description    Undoubtedly ancient woodland long before planting of Grand fir in the 1960's, Brook Wood is now considered to be a plantation on ancient woodland site. Most of the conifer was harvested following the storm of 1987 and now thanks to planting of broadleaved trees and much natural regeneration its status is more of a semi-natural ancient woodland. Strong presence of bluebells and other indicator plants show its conservation status is returning.

Along the south east side is a small seasonal stream, the centre forming the boundary here. In this part oak and hornbeam are mature and well spaced. Elsewhere in the woodland dense hornbeam has become established in which semi-mature oak, cherry and mountain ash are found. At this stage clearing round some of the oak to allow their canopy to spread and opening up clearings would greatly benefit the wood for wildlife. As part of a much larger woodland, wildlife such as the nightingale are attracted into Brook Wood. There is a public footpath running diagonally through the wood.

The pond in the southern part, at present seasonal, could be cleaned and bunded and made suitable for fish in a permanent body of water.

Boundaries  To the west the pathside, north the trackside, east there's a fence and then follows the centre of the stream. The south is unmarked by runs between the mauve marks at either end.
