Just off Vesta Road, running along the railway line between Brockley and New Cross Gate, is a narrow but deceptively large strip of wooded land. Left for years to do as it pleases, it now forms Brockley's very own nature reserve.
Despite there being only really one route round the place, you can still lose yourself once inside. As it's not open on a regular basis, it is completeley undisturbed. There are no surfaced paths, benches, or litter bins here. These photos, taken last year, give you a taste of how tranquil and unspoilt the place is.
