Knights Hill Wood

Knights Hill Wood is a small yet extremely valuable pocket of woodland in Lambeth, and as such helps to support local wildlife. The site is classed as a Local Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (Local SINC). It’s also an important landscape feature and educational resource for local schools and groups. It contains a good supply of dead wood and stumps, and important habitat for a wide range of insects. This includes the larvae of the Stag Beetle, Britain’s largest beetle, which live in decomposing wood for up to seven years, before emerging as an adult beetle in the summer. Woodland insects and fungi, provide food for birds like woodpeckers, blackbirds, robins and wrens, and wild mammals like woodmice and shrews.

There is 2 entrances one on Vicarage Road between Spiral community garden and Azile Everett House (tower block), and the other near tennis courts on common.

While it is not an official nature reserve, a wooded ravine at the edge of Plumstead Common is recognised as a nature conservation area. This reserve was originally part of the garden of St Mary’s vicarage and is largely made up of woodland. There are a number of different trees here including: sycamore (which is being gradually thinned and coppiced), ash, a number of mature false acacia, some London planes, holly and sessile, English oaks, of special note is an old black mulberry. The reserve is a haven for bird life, and in the open areas different species of butterfly can be seen.
