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.

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

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

We are currently developing an area to install a refabricated original miner’s wheel as a memorial to the Selby Coalfield. We are hoping this will be completed in early 2023.  The area will be accessible and includes seating to enable quiet reflection.
