Greno Woods

A large ancient woodland in the north of Sheffield

Greno Woods is a large and beautiful reserve covering 178 hectares, next to the
residential areas of Grenoside, Ecclesfield and Chapeltown. There is evidence that Greno Woods existed as early as 1600AD and has played a critical role in the local economy ever since.

Although it has been significantly altered by non-native conifers, it remains a peaceful ancient woodland with lots of species to look out for including brown hares, badgers, bats and the common frog. There are over 60 species of birds including linnet, redpoll and little owl, as well as harbouring the rare shining guest ant.
