I'm sure you've been missing FOGW activities in this difficult time. The wood has been a major asset to the local community during Covid but we've not been able to hold any indoor or outdoor events for obvious reasons.

 

Being optimistic we have started to think about the new world out there in the future and have organised a number of outdoor and indoor activities. Please see the Events page for details.

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 flora including swathes of bluebells and wood anemones in spring.
