Buck Wood

UK»England»Yorkshire»Buck Wood

Buck Wood has many natural springs. With the predominantly sloping ground of the ancient wood, the springs emerge from the ground and seep away lower down, drying up when the weather is dry, and creating boggy or muddy patches when it rains. When the weather is at its wettest, the water from the springs form streams, which sometimes run all the way downhill as far as the canal at the lowest boundary of the Wood.

Legend

In a Wood with such a long and varied history it would be surprising if there were no reports of ghostly figures roaming amongst the trees. The local story of a ‘Monk’s track’ through the woods, reputedly used by monks travelling between the neighbouring priory of Esholt and Kirkstall Abbey, has been linked to ghostly dark-robed figures at night in Buck Wood, near the site of the ancient stepping stones which cross the River Aire below the woodland.
