Scadbury Park Nature Reserve lies on the eastern edge of Chislehurst, overlooking the valley of the River Cray. With over 300 acres of beautiful countryside to explore, it forms part of a wildlife corridor linking to open countryside from Jubilee Country Park through Petts Wood and Scadbury along the London Loop.

The Friends of Scadbury work to enable residents and visitors to enjoy this wild and natural haven. Find our more here...
