Lesnes Abbey

Lesnes Abbey is called an ancient woodland, which means it's been around for over 400 years at least.

Within the reserve you will find ponds, glades, lowland heath (very rare in London) and even a fossil bed with sharks teeth! The site is known for its wild spring flowers that include the largest colony of native wild daffodil in SE England together with spectacular displays of bluebells and wood anemones.
