Barnsbury Wood is London's smallest Local Nature Reserve. This delightful hidden woodland was originally the garden of a house built in the 1840s. It eventually became abandoned to nature and is now home to a wealth of wildlife. The wood is owned and managed by Islington council.

Due to its small and vulnerable nature, the wood is only open to the public on Tuesday afternoons (and on Saturday afternoons in summer). However, at other times the site is used by school groups for environmental education sessions.
