Go for a wander in Petts Wood

Thirteen miles South East of Central London, and accessible via Petts Wood and Chislehurt stations, Petts Wood comprises more than 300 acres of woodland owned and managed by the National Trust.

The wood includes land formerly part of the Hawkwood Estate and Edlmann Wood, which were donated by local landowners, and is home to a range of wildlife, including a number of species of birds and butterflies alongside oak, ash, birch, hornbeam and sweet chestnut trees, and a range of others.

The wood is part of the London Loop walk, and if, like your author, you were raised in the middle of a wood, it all sounds very soothing. For more information, visit the National Trust Website.
