Site description:

Lion Wood is an ancient woodland which has been designated an Urban Local Nature Reserve. It was once part of Thorpe Wood - which is mentioned in the Domesday book of 1086 - so the wood was already established over a thousand years ago. It covers 12 hectares (roughly) and is nestled between several residential areas - stretching from telegraph Lane (ajoining the Telegraph Plantation) on it's west side to Pilling Park on it's east and running between Wellesley Avenue South and North.
