Do you know your Crystal Palace Park from your Horniman Gardens? Your Nunhead Cemetery from your Streatham Common?
The Great North Wood was a large area of ancient woodland and commons in south London, extending through to Upper and South Norwood (the clue’s in the name), Norbury and Thornton Heath. Over the centuries, the Great North Wood has become fragmented, broken up into a patchwork smaller plots of suburban land, parks and woodland.
Even today, it still supports a wide array of plants and animals and provides people with a welcome taste of nature and an escape from the crowded urban environment.
The London Wildlife Trust is carrying out a survey to find out how we can better manage the woodlands in the Great North Wood for people and wildlife and we hope you can you spare five minutes to answer some questions.
If you enter your email address at the end of the survey, you will be in with a chance to win a meal for two at The Great North Wood pub.
