Welcome ...

Welcome to the website of the Friends of Queen's Wood (FQW).

Queen's Wood is a wonderful local nature reserve situated in Muswell Hill, between Muswell Hill Road, Onslow Gardens, Connaught Gardens, Queen's Wood Road and Priory Gardens. There are several entrances to the wood, with the nearest tube being Highgate on the Northern Line.

FQW is a voluntary group which was set up to help look after the wood and its trees, plants, birds, animals, fungi and other forms of wildlife. We are a very friendly group and are always delighted to welcome new members.

The Friends have a group working on the last Sunday morning of each month for up to two hours. We carry out conservation tasks including creating new coppiced areas under the guidance of London Borough of Haringey's Conservation Officer and help to keep the wood free of litter. For more details of our activity, please look at our members' newsletter and our Chairman's report.

Details of coming working groups are posted at entrances to the wood and are listed in the coming events page of this site. You are welcome to join the Friends whether or not you take part in the working groups. A membership form is available from this site.

Queen's Wood is a wonderful experience at any time of year. Do visit it and help us to preserve this special place.

As part of the 'Haringey Woodland Partnership' Queen's Wood recently won the Community Woodland category at the 2014 London Tree & Woodland Awards.
