A walk of 4 green miles through the remnants of the Great North Wood
The walk will begin at One Tree Hill, passing over the hill down to Brenchley Gardens, Wood Vale, Cox’s Walk, Sydenham Hill Wood, Dulwich Wood, Dulwich Upper Wood and finally to Crystal Palace Park.
The Great North Wood is an ancient landscape of woods and commons which has remnants in the wildwood that colonised after the Ice Age ended 10,000 years ago. Though London has been much developed and altered by human industry and settlement, large tracts of the Great North Wood’s ancient woodland still remains, namely in Sydenham Hill and Dulwich Woods.
This is a walk of approximately four miles, taking around 2-3 hours. Please wear walking boots, bring water, sun hat and sun cream if needed, and clothing suitable for the conditions.
