Saxonbury Wood is made up of a gently sloping gully flanked on the sides by mature trees and lined with a vast array of grasses, sedges, rushes and ferns. A wonderful mix of poplar, oak, hornbeam, silver birch, willow and ash with the occasional conifer tree providing diversity. The slopes give plenty of vantage points to enjoy this woodland vista. Saxonbury Wood is an excellent example of varied deciduous woodland with lots of native flora.

A haven for wildlife - badgers, muntjac deer and foxes are often seen. A recent survey counted over thirty different birds that inhabit this area including green woodpeckers, wrens and coal tits.

The access track passes alongside the eastern boundary of the wood. Saxonbury Wood is surrounded by other areas of private woodland.

Because the woodland is so special it has a TPO (tree preservation order) with the article 4 on it. This simply protects the woodland and does not prevent woodland management - guidance is available from the Forestry Commission and other woodland organisations.
