Gaywood Plantation is small woodland, adjacent to a residential area, on the outskirts of Kings Lynn. The wood is characterised by large mature oaks with a hazel coppice under storey. There are two ponds in the north western corner of the wood and several open ditches running through it.
The Rookery, to the west of Gaywood, is a plantation of mature, even-aged oaks over grass. Gaywood Plantation and The Rookery have open boundaries that are largely surrounded by tarmac paths. The boundary of the woodland is 2 metres from the edge of these paths, and garden fences form the boundary along the northern edge of The Rookery.
