    West Wood is located 2.5 miles to the west of Winchester and adjacent to the Crab Wood Nature Reserve.

    Access to the wood is from Clarendon Way and there are clearly marked car parks for visitors.

    When you get into the wood you will find a giant ants nest to play in and a badger set to climb on. There are also places to build dens and great swings to play on.
