The Wood is described as the richest botanical woodland in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Many species are locally and nationally rare and a spring walk through the bluebell-carpeted woodland with the pungent smell of wild garlic is an enriching experience. A walk along this main ride is beautiful in summer, with the stunning bellflowers towering above the flower filled verges. Giant bellflowers can grow up to five or six feet in summer and since they particularly love to grow on calcareous soils in northern England they are at home in Millington Wood. Unusually for Yorkshire, the wood also has the smaller nettle-leaved bellflower that is usually found further south.

This site has a small car park, and an access for all route that takes you along the main woodland ride, although step steps make it impossible for wheelchairs and difficult for pushchairs to access the high viewpoint. A interpretation board will provide you with further information to help you enjoy your visit.
Please note the site has no toilets but these are available nearby in Pocklington. Picnic benches are provided. Charcoal burning takes place as part of the woodland management process and you can learn more about this by asking the charcoal burner.
