The NRA has produced a short guide to Northwood's Open Spaces and Woods, printed copies of which were distributed with the Autumn newsletter. After Lockdown 1, we were made aware that not all Northwood residents knew of the open spaces available to them and hope this short résumé will help access them. It shows general entry points to parks and woods and the ones that have parking, with a brief write-up of each area.

To open the guide as a pdf document, please click here.  You may need to use the zoom feature to sharpen the text.

The Ruislip Woods Festival which was planned for Sunday 13th May 2018 has been postponed, possibly until September, as the site is flooded.
