Sparrow Wood and Crofton Heath 9454

Brief Description

The site comprises Crofton Woods, Crofton Heath, Sparrow Wood, Gumping Common and Roundabout Wood.


In March 1973 Sparrow Wood and Crofton Heath, the former West Kent Golf Course, were threatened with an application to develop 139 acres of the land for housing, but a public enquiry led to opposition by Petts Wood Residents Association and other amenity groups. As a result the heath and woodland were preserved.
