As part of the Great North Wood Project, London Wildlife Trust are working across five London Boroughs (Bromley, Croydon, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark) in thirteen sites including six in Croydon, Spa Wood (the Lawns) being one of them. The aim of the project is to raise awareness of this largely forgotten woodland, encouraging people to explore, enjoy and value the natural wealth on their doorsteps. Conservation work will also enhance ancient woodland areas and help people discover them.
