Rabbitbank Wood: A varied site that consists of oak woodland, marsh, willow carr and species rich wet pasture therefore offering something of interest in all seasons.

The ageing oaks provide nest sites for woodpeckers and support a wide variety of other woodland birds. Woodland mammals include Roe Deer and Badger with Moles and Water Shrew recorded in the pasture.

Willow and Alder Carr habitat is rare in County Durham and has formed naturally where the two burns converge.
