Ox Close Wood is a small area of ancient woodland in West Yorkshire. The wood has a long history of being 'worked' by man. For many centuries it was a significant resource in the life of adjacent village, East Keswick. Villagers took timber and nuts from the wood, alongside using it for grazing of their animals. Extensive coppicing maintained the vitality of the woodland. A series of terraces crossing the wood are thought to be part of a medieval strip system. Today the wood is owned by the village wildlife trust and remains an area of open access.
