Please find attached a poster for the third Great North Wood walk taking place on Sunday 3rd August at 12 noon – 4pm. The aim of the walk is to celebrate the natural and cultural history of the local area, once known as the Great North Wood. The Wood was a vast complex of commons and woods which once stretched from Deptford to Selhurst with parts of the Wood noted in the Domesday Book in 1086. The Great North Wood is still thriving today in the string of ecologically rich nature reserves and green spaces which make up its remnants. This is a partnered walk between London Wildlife Trust, the Friends of One Tree Hill and Southwark Council, with nods to the Dulwich Estate and TCV at Dulwich Upper Wood.
We will meet at the Honor Oak Park entrance to One Tree Hill Local Nature Reserve (LNR), next to the Hindu Temple, passing over the Hill, along Brenchley Gardens, Wood Vale alongside Camberwell Old Cemetery to Cox’s Walk, into Sydenham Hill Wood LNR, through Dulwich Wood, onto College Road alongside Kingswood and onto Farquhar Road past Dulwich Upper Wood LNR, finishing up on the ridge of Crystal Palace Park.
This is about 4 miles, please wear suitable footwear, clothing suitable for the conditions, bring water and necessary refreshments. The walk is free, booking is not necessary. Please keep dogs on leads throughout.
