About the reserve

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 standards, with an understorey of predominantly elder and hawthorn. A number of birds can be seen here, including great spotted woodpecker, gold crest and spotted flycatcher. The site is owned and managed by Nottingham City Council.
