Explore these geologically significant ancient woods on this short walk in Croydon. There's a number of footpaths to follow around the 83 acre site including a climb to Breackneck Hill. At the high points you will find seats where you can relax and enjoy the views of the surrounding area. The woods consist of hazel, beech, oak, wood anemones, wavy hair-grass, heather and bilberry.
The Vanguard Way and London Loop long distance paths both run close to the woods so you can pick these up to extend your walk. If you head north east you will soon come to Addington Hills where there is a great viewpoint and London's largest area of heathland. Head south east and you come to Littleheath Woods and Selsdon Wood. Here you'll find 200 acres of ponds, open meadows and ancient woodland.
