Festival of the Great North Wood – 7th – 13th December 2020

The London Wildlife Trust write:

Join us for a virtual celebration of the Great North Wood, with an activity for everyone, including talks and film screenings, craft workshops, woodland yoga, a virtual walk, nature writing and spoken word workshops and a baking workshop – all taking place online.

The Great North Wood is a sprawling ancient landscape that gradually became fragmented by the development of south London’s suburbs – but whose name lives on in districts such as Norwood, Gipsy Hill, Forest Hill and Penge (‘edge of wood’).

Once stretching for several miles between the Thames and Croydon, today the Wood consists of a series of small woodlands, parks, cemeteries, sports grounds, railway embankments and gardens – all of which provide a home for nature within a modern urban landscape.

This project is predominantly funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund with further support from the Mayor of LondonVeolia Environmental TrustThe Dulwich Estate, and The Dulwich Society.

For more information on how to take part in these events, please visit the Great North Wood Festival website where you will find lots of wonderful activities.
