Judy Woods is a complex of woodlands in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England. Individual woodlands in the complex include Jagger Park Wood, Royds Hall Great Wood, Old Hanna Wood and Low Wood.[1]

The woodlands are situated on Coal Measures, and present in the woodlands are numerous bell pits, which have been used to provide coal.[2]

The woods are named after Judy North, who lived nearby in the 1850s and 1860s, and whose family had managed part of the site since the early 19th century.[3]
