Fleshwick, although only a small wood of 8 hectares, is a prominant landscape feature overlooking Fleshwick Bay near Port Erin.
It was created in 1971 with mixed conifers, with the Corsican Pine being the most successful species.
It has poor internal and external access. The name Fleshwick means "green creek".
