Foxley Wood for Spring Flowers

About the walk

Croydon Natural History & Scientific Society ecology walk – “Foxley Wood for spring flowers”. Led by Jane McLauchlin, who has been conducting botanic surveys of the wood since the 1980s, and Malcolm Jennings. Foxley Wood is 26 acres on the chalk hillside of the Godstone Road valley comprised of mostly Semi-Natural Ancient Woodland with secondary woodand on the lower slopes, and a conservation grazed field being restored to chalk grassland. It has been managed on behalf of Croydon Council by the Friends of Foxley since 1992. There are limestone scalpings surfaced paths but some steep slopes with steps. The woodland is comprised of oaks, ash, hazel (including a recently coppiced area), cherries, field maples, whitebeam, yew, with features of a massive ancient beech pollard, plantations of junipers, a grove of cherries in the field that are all suckers from one original tree.
