Possibly the most varied piece of woodland in Middlesex, with fantastic wildflower displays in spring.
The highlight of the wood is the abundance of flowers in spring. Bluebells form a stunning carpet, along with yellow archangel, lesser celandine, wood anemone and the uncommon coralroot bittercress. Golden saxifrage and marsh marigolds grow on stream banks and around the pond. The pond is also important for dragonflies and amphibians. The wood is rich in invertebrates and birds, including all three British species of woodpecker.
