Baldwin's is a wood composed of predominantly broadleaf species with a smattering of Grand Fir and Spruce. The wood has two bridleways running through it and a footpath skirting the edge giving good access to and from the surrounding area. This allows visitors the ability to join or leave the wood as part of a longer walk or ride in the locality.
This wood lays on the side of the Chess Valley and nearby is the River Chess, a chalk stream with it's last active watercress beds not far away at Sarratt Bottom. At the bottom of the valley below the wood are the remains of a roman villa.
