    It could also be a British thing. I don't recall any Americans referring to a wooded place of set boundaries as a "Wood." Maybe they do in some regions, but not in any that comes to mind. Even as a proper noun, it's "Woods" in every case I can think of ("Pattersons Woods," "Wickersham's Woods," etc.)
