Crawfords wood occupies 49.5 acres of land and on the west side of the village of Aspull and the site is mostly flat. Crawford's wood trees was planted in the winter of 1996/97. The site is mostly broadleaved woodland with a mixture of rides, paths and open grassland.
The site is popular with dog walkers and ramblers and due to its urban fringe location is accessible to a large number of people. Many of the footpaths crossing the site link to public rights of way and open areas such as Haigh Hall Country Park and the Leeds Liverpool canal towpath.
