Corbet Wood covers 9.3 ha and is a Countryside Heritage Site and Its SSSI designation is based on its geological interest - fossil remains of a small Triassic reptile (Rhynchosaurus) have been found. It is part of a sandstone outcrop known as Grinshill which rises to 192m, and is one of the few hills in north Shropshire. Set in the flat Shropshire Plains, it has extensive panoramic views and is a popular visitor spot. Corbet Wood comprises a mixture of different woodland including native broadleaved and exotic amenity planting. Part of the site was quarried in the past and there are dramatic cliffs, stone walls, trackways and small redundant quarries.
