Ruislip Woods contain a number of woods including Park Wood, Copse Wood, Mad Bess Wood, Bayhurst Woods and Poors Field, and the site is a substantial fragment of the formerly extensive Ruislip Park, at one time comparable to Enfield Chase.
The woods were worked into the 20th century but in 1932-36 the estate passed into public ownership. Ruislip Woods was preserved as part of the Green Belt and designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest in 1950.
