The reserveGunnersbury Triangle became one of the London Wildlife Trust's first reserves when it was saved from development by a campaign run by local people. Since the end of the Second World War the woodland here has grown up naturally and the reserve has become a sheltered birch and willow woodland with attractive pond, marsh and meadow. Hidden away, the reserve opens up before you - so follow the nature trail, listening out for birds or the rustle of a hedgehog and look out for the tunnels of field voles or interesting spiders and ladybirds.
