Owlthorpe Forest settings runs down the south side of Owlthorpe Fields past Owlthorpe Wetlands situated to the east.

Owlthorpe Forest settings has matured over the years from first planting and is now the habitat of many of the wildlife species found in the area. Over time the trees have extended naturally and now cover much of Owlthorpe Fields. The forest runs down from the Leabrook estate, all the way down to the playground at Edenthorpe Grove. One spur of the Ochre dyke runs through Owlthorpe Forest Settings and meets up with the main stream of the Ochre Dyke at Edenthorpe Grove. The Ochre Dyke then carries on through Westfield Plantation.
