Hut Wood (Hutt) was a timber plantation on the Stoneham Estate and was an enclosed portion of North Stoneham Common bordering Chilworth. This part of the Common was probably gently wooded long before its enclosure, because in 1825, fifty-five 'Oak Trees standing in Hutt Wood' were advertised for sale[1].

Hut Wood was surveyed by John Whitcher in 1818. It is number 159 on the Estate Plan.
