About the event

The Great North Wood was a vast landscape of coppice and wooded commons that once spanned across south London.

We'll trace a route through the old wood taking in Streatham Common, Norwood Grove, Biggin Wood, Spa Wood, Grangewood Park, Beaulieu Heights and Stambourne Wood before ending up in Crystal Palace Park, the site of the ancient Penge Common.

Along the way we'll talk about the history that shaped these woods and the wildlife that thrives in them still.

This walk is free and open to all. No booking necessary.
