How to get there: Situated off Oakwood Road off the main A1 Fallodian Way.
It can be reached on foot via Hampstead Way from Finchley Road (A589), NW11.
Golders Green Underground is just over one mile from Big Wood.
Visitor facilities: The nature reserve contains a nature trail which starts at the Temple Fortune Hill entrance to Big Wood.
What to see: Immediately south of Falloden Way are twin patches of woodland known as Big Wood and Little Wood.
They are two of the few surviving remnants of the ancient Woodland that covered North London.
As a relatively isolated patch of woodland, it attracts large numbers of birds now rarely seen in the rest of London, particularly owls and the Green Woodpecker.
