Do you know it?
Here's the map 73780&z=1&sv=garthorne+road&st=6&tl=Garthorne+Road ,+London,+SE23&searchp=newsearch.srf&mapp=newmap.s rf

When I moved to the area fifteen years ago the gate to this was open occasionally, but I never went in.

Now it is permenantly locked up, and Im itching to go in.

Does this link up with the nature reserve that is accesible from Devonshire Road? It seems to be around the same spot, but is cut off by the railway line.

Any info on it would be appreciated.

Please do not walk across the railway line. No link I am sure . Unless they have invested in a tunnel.
I know they tried to get permission to build on part of your reserve in last few years but thank god it was chucked out.
Never be complacent.

I too remember when the Garthorne reserve was open and also regret not visiting.
Dacres wood/reserve used to be permanently open 2/3 years ago and I would often visit there.
That too is now always locked.

Perhaps they are being turned into tree museums, but I doubt that it will be a dollar and a half entry fee. Sounds quite cheap these days.
