Welcome to Prestwood Nature
An ancient pond on the old Prestwood Commons that was used as a watering place for animals on their way to market.
The pond has been restored by Prestwood Nature volunteers. See our Sheepwash Page for more details.
If you would like to help us come and join one of our work parties. Look on our Events Page for the dates and times.
On a recent walk round the wood, more than 30 people joined John Morris, Director of the Chiltern Woodlands Project, to hear about the way the woodland is managed and learn about future plans.
Jenny Smith has written an article describing the issues that were raised. Click here
