The Story of Gillfield Wood - full history from our surveys and research.

Gillfield Wood - known locally also as Gillyfield Wood was first documented in 1561 as ‘a springe wood called Jyll felde’ but is certainly much older. Sinuous in shape and following the Totley Brook, it is at the edge of Sheffield near the Peak District National Park, lying on the boundary between both Totley and Holmesfield and South Yorkshire and Derbyshire. Gillfield is a peaceful wood, mostly replanted with American (red) oak and larch in the 1960’s but retaining much of its ancient spring flora including swathes of bluebells and wood anemones.


The Friends of Gillfield Wood is a voluntary group formed in 2011. We work in partnership with Sheffield City Council's Parks and Countryside Service to maintain and improve the wood. The group aims to learn about the wood, increase its biodiversity and encourage public enjoyment. It organises many events including conservation work days, surveys, talks and family events.
