These Woods are so old that they are recorded in the Doomsday Book in 1068. They comprise of mainly Oaks, Silver Birches, Hornbeam, Beech and Hazel trees.


There are many species of plants and flowers in the woods that are only found in ancient woodlands. The woods extend over a ten mile area and comprise of four woodland areas, all quite different from each other. Some are quite dense and full of oaks and silver birches and others are more open depending on the woodland management of each different area.


They are a wonderful place to walk and relax and you can walk for ages without seeing anyone. A rare haven of peace so close to London.
