Great Wood. This is also joined by Mutton Corner and together they form the largest block of woodland on the old Lambourne Hall Estate. The stream runs through both woods. There is hornbeam coppice on the north-western edge while the remainder is oak and ash with hazel coppice. The age of the wood can be understood from the Bank and ditch earthworks around the boundary. There are also several ponds and a ride system.Patch Park. Late medieval hall house Timber framed and plastered. This was known as Hunts until the18th. The area also contains a private industrial estate with a mix of buildings – some of which look as if they have a Second World War origin. It is also a paintball games location
