Lesnes Abbey Woods

Posted on October 16, 2010 by Teresa Pearce

Lesnes Abbey Woods is one of the loveliest places in the area. I often walk my dog there and I look forward to taking my granddaughter there for nature walks when she is a bit older. I am very please to hear that the Big Lottery has awarded a local non-profit organisation the funds to launch a three month project. The organisation called Embrace will use the money to hold free activities at Lesnes Abbey Woods until January 29 next year.

The next event will be a nature photography walk on October 30 from 1pm to 4pm.

Glade clearing, which involves cutting down shrubs and pulling up invasive plants, will take place on November 6 from 1pm to 4pm.

Future activities will include a fungi walk, felling trees and wooden fence making.

For information about other events and to book a place, email or call 020 7274 9450 or 07984 662996.

    Hello Teresa
    There is aproblem with access for wheelchair users for Lesnes Woods and park from Belvedere. There are fences all the way round. My mother would love to visit the Woods and park but I cannot find a way in. There are entrances for bikes and pushchairs but not wheelchairs. She has difficulty raising her legs so I cannot get her over the 6 inch rail at the front.
    Any suggestions or help would be appreciated
    Best wishes Richard Hamblin
