Nature reserves


The Green Chain has within its wider landscape some very special places where you can really 'get away from it all'.

Although small in size, the 12 reserves listed below contain within them a rich variety of plants and wildlife that can be enjoyed at your leisure - from the wild daffodils at Lesnes Abbey to water voles on the river Thames and tawny owls at Sydenham Hill Woods.

Directions are provided to each site and contact details if you want to find out more. Please respect the wildlife and remember you are a guest in their home.
