Some good news in my inbox yesterday:

The London Wildlife Trust have secured some funding to promote, rediscover and connect the Great North Wood.

These are the prospective areas - which we're pleased to say they include Dacres Wood

and more information can be downloaded from this link

I couldn't agree with this initiative more. It saddens me though that the London Wildlife Trust approved Southwark Council's action to remove many mature trees at both Camberwell cemeteries, also listed. See also this thread:

It is possible that some remnants of Oak of Honor Wood, which would have been originally part of the Great North Wood, remain on One Tree Hill. Area D1 in Camberwell New Cemetery is an area of woodland contiguous with this and will be removed shortly it seems. This is on the hill but not part of the Local Nature Reserve. I'm finding it hard to square how both actions can be supported by the same organisation.
