Description   To be found in the centre of a large native oak and chestnut woodland Chalybeate Wood is a delight of nature. The wide areas of bluebells and wood anemone found in these woods can be enjoyed in spring. Bird song at this time of year is particularly strong here. High forest, mostly wide-spreading oaks, occupy the high ground while deep ghylls cutting through the wood in a northerly direction provide home to the rare Atlantic bryophytes which are one of the features protected and cited in the SSSI (site of special scientific interest).

Guidance for the management for these valuable habitats has been provided by Natural England and can be access by clicking here, Management recommendations from Natural England.  The woodland here hosts a good community of woodland owners, cooperating and enjoying the help and assistance from Natural England to manage their woods.

Either side of the ghyll and feeding the stream flowing in the ghyll are areas of soft ground where chalybeate spring waters emerge, these are rich in iron and other minerals, a description can be read by clicking here  Chalybeate.

Sporting rights   are included

Access    from Rogers Rough Road along a hard track to an access gate, then over a stream and up to the start of the woods. There is a right of way for all purposes and at all times along this track with shared maintenance according to use made.

Wide-spreading oaks with coppice below, a stream running in the ghyll to the west with a chalybeate spring running for most of the year. Bluebells and wood anemone spread over the clear open ground making their display even more dramatic.

Boundaries are: edge of the tracks on the east and south sides, the track centre on the western side.
