Glapton Wood Nature Reserve


Glapton Wood is a mixed urban woodland which covers almost 4 hectares. The site provides valuable habitat for wildlife and offers local residents an opportunity to experience nature right on their doorstep.

Glapton Wood is thought to be a remnant of the old Clifton Woods, which were mostly cleared during the late 1950s to make way for the construction of the Clifton Housing Estate.

It is dominated by oak with an understorey of predominantly elder and hawthorn. Other tree and shrub species include ash, Scots pine, sycamore and hazel. The ground flora includes bramble and rosebay willowherb. A number of birds can be seen in the wood including great spotted woodpecker, goldcrest, spotted flycatcher and pied wagtail.

Glapton Wood is situated in the Clifton estate (SK548339) and is accessible from Wycombe Close and Ridgemont Walk. If you are using SatNav, enter NG11 9HE.
