Walk in Joyden's Wood

A 300 acre wood 13 miles from the centre of London, between Bexley and the M25, Joyden’s Wood is an area of ancient woodland in the care of the Woodland Trust. We are told that the wood contains a number of ponds which are habitats for rare newts.

The woodland is perhaps most notable for the presence of Faesten Dic, an ancient Saxon defensive structure constructed around the fifth and sixth centuries, possibly as a result of tribal conflicts that took place in the area.
