Park and activity type English and Literacy activities in Oxleas Wood and Meadow
Summary Oxleas Wood is part of a large woodland including Jack Wood, Castle Wood and Shepherdleas Wood. Today Oxleas is a very impressive ancient woodland, dominated by tall oak trees, with an understorey of hazel and sweet chestnut. It is actively managed for nature conservation and is reckoned by ecologists to be one of the most important woodlands for wildlife in the whole of London. Once part of a much larger area of land which has been continuously wooded for thousands of years, an incredibly complex community of plants and animals have grown up and evolved together.
