Jubilee Wood and Sixty Acre Wood is now an area of nature conservation. A number of trees date from the late-19th century.
Jubilee Wood abuts Sixty Acre Wood, and although the latter contains species typical of ancient woodland it appears to have long been used for agriculture. Once part of the Hampton Court lands owned by the Crown, in 1587 Queen Elizabeth I gave it to Thomas Vincent. By 1872 it was partly landscaped as parkland and woods created for the Barwell Court Estate. Jubilee Wood was planted to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee in 1887, divided into two parts by an electricity sub-station; only the eastern end of Jubilee Wood is publicly accessible.
