Cherry Wood (also known as Cherry Wood Open Space)

Introduction

Cherry Wood is a remnant of old woodland that once covered a larger area but was eventually built over by residential development. Until 1990 it was neglected and used as a dump, but work to enhance it was then undertaken by LB Merton and Cherry Wood was established as a nature reserve in 2000.
