The Wood That Built London: Gorne Wood & Brockley

In the northern part of the Borough of Lewisham, a four-kilometre railway cutting forms a green corridor through Brockley and Forest Hill. Although severely encroached upon by the construction of the Croydon Canal in 1801 and the railway in 1838, the landscape still preserves some traces of Honor Oak Wood and Gorne Wood, and has been designated a Site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature Conservation, known as the M112 Nature Corridor.
