The Great North Wood was a vast wooded landscape that once spanned from Deptford in the north to Selhurst in the South.
Today the Great North Wood lives on as a scattering of ancient woodland fragments, with Sydenham Hill Wood and Dulwich Wood forming the largest. Ancient woodland is interspersed with recent woodland and other greenspaces and the landscape continues to be a vital resource for wildlife and people alike.

GiGL is the capital's environmental record centre- we mobilise, curate and share data that underpins our knowledge of London's natural environment. The GiGL species dataset is an extensive database of species records and although most tax are represented gaps do exist both species and geographical in nature.
