No, not a trip to the pub, but a talk on the four mile long local woodland, thriving since 1086, with a string of ecologically rich nature reserves and green spaces making up its remnants. Learn about this ancient wood that once covered a huge area of London from Deptford in the north to Selhurst in the south. The talk will cover the crucial role the wood had in London as well as delving into its rich ecology and botany. You will also get a chance to learn about the threats facing the contemporary fragments of the wood and the measures that a new London Wildlife project called Great North Wood will put in place.
