What to see: Ham Lands local nature reserve is an extensive area of grassland and scrub with abundant wildlife. The site was once extensively excavated for gravel, then back-filled over time with a variety of soil types from all over London. This has created a unique mosaic of different vegetation types attracting many butterfly and bird species. In spring, the site is full of hawthorn blossom and in the summer, the meadows support hundreds of wild flowers.
