This walk explores the Bentley Priory nature reserve in Harrow. The reserve has good footpaths to follow to 55 hectares of ancient woodland, grassland, scrub, wetland, streams and a lake. In the reserve you will find a variety of wildflower such as spotted orchid. Look out for birds including buzzard, spotted flycatcher, and bullfinch.
You can park at the Stanmore Common car park and pick up the London Loop to the reserve. Other public footpaths will take you past the deer park and the lake.
There's lots of good options for extending your walk in this area. If you head west along the London Loop you can visit Harrow Weald Common and Oxhey Woods with its splendid, easy access sculpture trail. The Stanmore Common walk starts from the same start point as this walk.
