The trees are a mixture of deciduous trees, namely beech. They are collectively known as Browns Wood and as you can see are a young woodland. This will grow into a good woodland area with pleasant walks as the trees mature.
Browns Wood was created as an area in 1995 with the notable trees being planted in the year 2000. There are 6 hectares of probably ancient woodland and it is the largest local wood with public access. The 10 hectares of new planting on the slope with good views of the rural Ouse valley are the millennium trees. A hornbeam coppice at the southern end of the wood is a notable feature.
The woods are located on the top of the hill near to the roundabout to Oakley and Clapham villages. There are small parking areas on top of the hill along the Highfield Road to Oakley.
