Bramingham Wood is a natural woodland, just to the north of Luton.

The wood covers approximately 45 acres (180,000 m2) and has been classified as an ancient woodland that is, it has known to have been in existence for at least 400 years and has probably been a woodland for much longer.
After the Trust took over the wood, the Bramingham Wood Volunteers were formed who carry out much of the work on behalf of the Trust. A network of paths through the wood have been created.
