If anyone has not been through Brook Wood recently, they have missed a remarkable transformation! For months Phil Mason and his lads (whenever weather allowed) have been working away on building paths, steps and lots more out of wood. Many tons of hardcore have gone into the paths. There has been much thinning and much more work is hurriedly being put in ahead of the grand opening with Fiona Bruce MP on Saturday April 12th. Some bits have suffered in the process; the Large Bittercress marsh was accidentally damaged but is being restored as I write. The debate on mowing the Coronation Meadow (as it is now called) continues. But we all have a wood to be proud of! Later we will see what wildlife is flourishing - George Hill


  1. If the Grand Opening is open to the public, at what time, and where is it?

    1. Hi
      Thanks for asking. The Brook Wood official opening is at 2pm on Sat 12th April and is at what is now called Coronation Meadow, which is the grass where Townfields meets Coronation Crescent, where there used to be some old garages. All welcome. Cheers. George Hill
