About the Great North Wood

London Wildlife Trust received support from Heritage Lottery Fund as part of the Living Landscapes initiative to launch the Great North Wood project in June 2017. The Trust has been working with volunteers, community groups, landowners, and local councils, in a collaborative project reviving and reimagining the Great North Wood as a home for nature and people – in a modern urban landscape.

Further support for the project comes from the Mayor of London, Veolia Environmental Trust, the Dulwich Estate, and Dulwich Society.
