The largest of the Forestry Commission's new woodlands within Thames Chase, consisting of two former farms sloping down towards the River Ingrebourne, only a stream at this point.

The former Pages Farm has been extensively planted, but the grazing meadows of Mount Pleasant Farm lower down have been left in their original state and are rich in flowers and insects. The combination of these with the river, the young woodland and the rough grassland makes it a good area for birds at almost any time of the year.

Sculptures designed by local children add extra interest.
