Tucked away in the centre of a mixed woodland, Far Wrighte Wood offers seclusion and privacy. Conifers, including Corsican and Scots pine nurse the oak, bringing them up straight to produce good timber trees. The conifers can gradually be thinned to allow the oak to expand. A woodland to thoroughly enjoy as it develops and to influence its final structure. 

Gayhurst Hall, just along the road was occupied by George Wrighte, a beautiful Elizabethan stone mansion, a noble pile now converted to apartments.  The house was at the centre of a large estate, Gayhurst Wood, of which Far Wrighte Wood is part, was an integral part of that estate and is visible on the aerial photos link just to the south. 

Access:  A right of way along a forest track from the gated entrance off the lane, another track leads off the main route at a right angle down past Wrighte Wood.  

Boundaries: To the south there are two posts at either side of the wood marking a line with Wrighte Wood. At the north there is a high fence. To the east and west the track edge forms the boundary.
