LWT announces August and early September Braeburn Park workdays

London Wildlife Trust is getting down to work in earnest at its new Braeburn Park reserve to the south of Hall Place, and just up the road from Crayford railway station, offering new conservation volunteering opportunities for people in this part of the Borough. Early work will focus on opening up the significant length of footpaths,, some of which have got overgrown with Bramble and other vegetation, and putting in steps on some of the steeper sections.

Early work at Braeburn Park will involve improving pathways, some of which are now overgrown and badly rutted as a result of illegal motorbike use on the site. This picture was taken in April 2011. (Photo: Chris Rose)
