Welcome to Raincliffe Woods

Raincliffe Community Wood is many things. It is a woodland open to the public every day.

Raincliffe Woods represent a fresh way of working with the local community to create a better environment, provide employment training and a career building initiative.

We are also a business; a social enterprise that offers training in the form of apprenticeships, education and mentoring to create sustainable longterm management of the woods and a place accessible to all.
