Selby Community Woodland



Contact 01757 708449 for any enquiries.

The Community Woodland, on Bondgate, Selby was officially opened in 2012.  The Big Lottery Fund - Groundwork Community Spaces gave funding for trees in the woodland.  It is a fabulous facility with lots of different trees and walks provided throughout the area.  Seating and sculptures can be seen as you walk through the woodland.

There is a separate Dog Walking Area with dog bins provided on site.

Come along and spend a lovely hour walking through the trail in the Woodland Area.

British Legion volunteers held a Poppy Picnic to raise awareness and funds before the Remembrance Day on the site.

It is open to the public and there is a small car park for visitors to the woodland area only.  

The Community Woodland had beautiful sculptures and seating installed which was officially opened by school children and Trustees in July 2013. (see pictures below)

Groundwork and Selby Town Council resource staff cut and maintain the woodland area. 

The Gateway was official opened in April 2016 (see pictures below). The Artist Chris Cambell worked alongside local school children before fabricating the gateway design. Eggborough Power Station donated the funds to make the gateway. 




Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England and Wales.  The scheme had three applications and Bondgate Woodland were awarded £12,000.  The money will be used at the Woodland to create some new habitats withing the space provided, minibeast hotel, wildflowers, to install some timber trim-trail/fitness equipment and to improve signage and interpretation of the site to encourage greater ownership and understanding of the area.  Work will be undertaken wit hthe involvement of local school children. 

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco's 390 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags.
