One Tree Hill

Ancient oak tree at One Tree Hill

With amazing views over London a semaphore station once signalled the East India Company when ships were sighted in the Channel.

The steep hill is wooded with open grassland at the top. The site has many ancient trees, but the main ones are hybrid black-poplar and London plane, the result of former landscaping.

There are also wild service trees and midland hawthorns. The ground flora includes bluebells, heath grass and compact rush.
