History

This small area of woodland is hidden behind houses on all sides and in name is all that remains of a huge area called Spring Park Wood which reached from Ash Road to Spout Hill and Bridle Way.  

In 1922 a considerable part of the woodland became a golf course from Shirley Road to Links View Road (hence the name which today appears unusual with no golf course in site), and included Kennel Wood.
