Located in a peaceful and quiet rural location surrounded by ancient woodland and open farm land the woodland is accessed directly from a lane and a bowl like lower area which forms a good loading area. Although in very wet conditions this can flood!  Proceed up the bank away from the lane and you disappear into the depths of this woodland.
Although small in size, once within the wood it feels wonderfully secluded. The upper levels offer plenty of spots to create an area in which to camp.This woodland hosts a wide variety of flora and at different times of the year present a wonderful display.
Of great note and what sets this woodland apart is the wide variety of wildlife: it is quite rare to find four different species of deer all present in the same woodland, these being red, Roe, muntjac and Chinese water deer. Various trees here have been rubbed each year by red stags as they mark their territory prior to the rut. Hares, foxes, buzzards and tawny owls can also be found here. To have the chance of seeing so many species is really unusual.
The woodland is believed to have historic and medieval associations with the former Augustine Abbey at Flixton Priory.
Haggard Wood forms a small part of a larger area of woodland known as Abbey Wood. This is a special woodland and is protected as a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest). Although Haggard Wood is not part of the SSSI protected area a new owner will have the pleasure of knowing that they are the custodians of a nationally recognised woodland without the responsibilities associated with SSSI.
