It's a beautiful place at the best of times but it's a very special place to take the family in autumn. There are some interesting facts on boards as you walk around. A gorgeous woodland filled with history.

These woods are great for going for a relaxed stroll or a more serious walk. They've got well signposted paths which are generally well kept, and the woodland is beautiful with streams running through it, which make great places for kids to play!

Used these as a kid and lately with school children. Lots to discover including the fairy village. Happy memories of den building and long days away from home exploring and creating my own entertainment. Beautiful in all saesons, well signposted and good paths.

It's always a treat to visit Ecclesall Woods, and I enjoyed spending a couple of hours wandering through them on Friday. They're beautiful, extensive, and we're very lucky to have them.
