Located adjacent to Joydens Wood, Chalk Wood in Bexley forms an extensive block of ancient woodland and has regionally rare plants, including green hellebore, early purple orchid, broad-leaved helleborine, orpine Solomon's seal and lily of the valley. With open areas supporting heathland with heather, common cow-wheat and breeding tree pipit the site is important for insects, including the white admiral butterfly, moths and the southern wood-ant.

A disused chalk mine supports hibernating bats and horse riding is allowed along the bridle path to the western end of the woods.
