sydenham hill woods

stop start stop start stop start. that was pretty much the weather all day long today, and then finally the drizzling nonsense stopped late afternoon, so being slightly cabin crazy (and hangover) we dashed out of the door as quick as quick can be. we headed straight up to the woods on sydenham hill for a spot of fresh air and adventure. the perfect excuse to try out that new camera of mine! yippeeee.

sydenham hill woods, combined with the dulwich wood which is right next door, forms the largest remaining tract of the old great north wood, which once stretched from deptford all the way to selhurst. this is fact.

    I absolute love Sydenham Hill Woods. It was one of my favorite places to take the kids for a walk in London (until we moved to the US last year). It’s like discovering secret woods.
