A recent survey of the site, carried out by the North Yorkshire County Council Department for Ecology identified 125 different species of flora and fauna within the wood.
Work to maintain, and also regenerate, the woods has been ongoing for the past three years with gulleys cleared, walls re-built and insect habitats created.
