Long Wood is one of the Borough of Ealing’s very few nature reserves. It is therefore an extra special place for nature conservation and wildlife.
It was second site to be designated as a Local Nature Reserve by Ealing council. (The first was Perivale Wood.)
Long Wood is in the Brent River Park (BRP), but in the latest borough plan (Local Development Framework or LDF) Ealing council has taken Long Wood out of the BRP. Why?? See news item.
