About

The Friends of Oxleas Woodlands was formed in 2018 to work with the Royal Borough of Greenwich to protect and conserve the woodlands on the south side of Shooters Hill, in south-east London.

The woodlands consist of 130 hectares of woodland and meadow. Much of it is designated ancient woodland, and has been recognised as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It is also a nature reserve.

​​The woodlands are a precious habitat for wildlife and a popular amenity for local people.

The woodlands form part of the London Green Chain walk, and there are a number of well-defined footpaths through the woods.  Visitors are urged to keep to these, as continuous intrusion into deeper woodland is causing increasing damage to the delicate ecological balance of the area.
