Sandall Beat Wood

The Beat is a fantastic outdoor space to enjoy a picnic, keep the kids occupied, or take a stroll in its ever-changing woodland.

Sandall Beat Wood's vast woodland area is home to lots of unique and exciting wildlife - why not look out for them when enjoying a walk through the wood?

The wood has a great outdoor play area with toddler and junior play facilities, along with picnic areas to enjoy a bite to eat.

Sandall Beat Wood is home to the Sandall Beat environment centre, one of the few green space education centres in the borough. The centre hosts lots of fun events for kids including craft sessions and sessions handling some of the wood's rare and exciting wildlife.

To keep up to date with these events, follow Sandall Beat Wood on Facebook.
