Highgate Wood

Highgate

Highgate Wood is 28 hectares of ancient woodland. It is a haven for wildlife and provides numerous easily accessible and scenic woodland trails. The Sports Ground, located in an opening in the Wood, provides a picturesque and rural backdrop, as well as top quality turf. There is an excellent playground, a renowned cafe, an information hut with booklets, newsletters and trail guides and well maintained toilet facilities.

The rich diversity of wildlife in the Wood has been well researched and documented over the years. To date over 900 invertebrate species, 338 moth species, 353 fungi species, 70 bird species and seven bat species have been recorded. Many of these species are reliant on very particular niches found only in ancient woodlands, with their well-developed and complex ecosystems.
