Batcliffe Wood OS 1875 for info. board.j

The Friends work with Ash Road  Area Residents Association, Queenswood Tenants and Residents Association, and Queenswood and Woodbridge in Bloom to help improve Batcliffe Wood (shown in green on the historic map (left).  The wood extends south from Beckett Park as far as Kirkstall Lane and Queenswood Drive.  One of the original carriage drives to Kirkstall Grange ran through the wood - you can still follow path of the sunken road.  The Council has replaced the fencing alongside Queenswood Drive and volunteers clean up rubbish, manage the woodland, and plant trees.  A wildflower meadow has been established at the southern end.  A Council Parks Ranger organises four volunteer tasks each year.   

Look out for posters giving details of volunteer tasks.
