Littlewood is one of Knowsley's oldest woods, on the former coach road linking Knowsley and Croxteth Parks. It is mostly oak, with attractive spring flowers including red campion and interesting fungi and insect life. It was selected to become part of the Community Contracting Initiative from a list of potential urban woodlands in 1999, and now the volunteer group is well established and active in maintaining the woodland.
