A great place for a dog walk, and the woods are also full of local history. Records of human activity here go back as far as the Bronze Age - and after that the Saxons, Romans and everybody else made their mark on the forest. Thumbs up to Doncaster Council for rescuing the woods in the 1990s, when the Forestry Comission were forced to sell them off, and doing a really good conservation job since then.
Forest trails lead into the woodland straight from the car park, and these are easy to follow.
For a longer walk you can join a Bridleway and walk through the fields outside the woods too.

Lovely well defined paths round this well maintained wood, with lots of off piste patch you can also follow, plenty for the dogs to explore. Beautiful when the bluebells are out, a carpet of blue on the wood floor, the snow drops are also as impressive. Parking for about 12 cars at the entrance. My dogs know we are going there from a mile away and bark till we get there with excitement.
