The network of community groups committed to the care of the environment, greener living and development of the local economy in Berkshire
Burnham Beeches

Famous for its ancient, pollarded beech trees Burnham Beeches has been owned and managed by the Corporation of London since 1880. On the doorstep of Slough, although located within Buckinghamshire, the 500 acres of woodland and common land are protected by Act of Parliament as a public open space "for the enjoyment of Londoners" and are a unique example of ancient managed woodland. Guided walks are held throughout the year - booking required as they are very popular!
Regular conservation tasks are organised with local groups - no age limit. If you would like to join one contact the Head Keeper, Burnham Beeches Office, Hawthorn Lane, Farnham Common, Slough SL2 3TE, tel 01753 647358, or e-mail
