Welcome

Welcome to my personal web site, within which, I hope to share with you the History and Wildlife of Hainault Forest, gathered over many years, whilst living close by in Hainault and Clayhall, in the London Borough of Redbridge. The people of Redbridge should be proud of those visionaries who in 1903 secured Hainault Forest as an open space, for us, forever.

We are indebted to Edward North Buxton and the Leaders of the Local Authorities for making it possible.

"A lovely website (without adverts) which explores native trees found within UK, with accompanying. photographs. Thanks for sharing with the education community."
