History

Hayley Green Wood was once a part of Warfield Park, an extensive estate which was owned by Colonel John Walsh in 1766. The site has seen more recent industrial uses, but during 2002 Hayley Green Wood was incorporated into Westmorland Park. The balancing pond was created in the early 1990s to store excess water during heavy rainfall. It is owned and maintained by Thames Water.

Westmorland Park was established as part of the public open space provision within the Whitegrove housing development and was transferred to the ownership of the council in 1999.

Wildlife

Hayley Green Wood is designated a Local Nature Reserve and Local Wildlife Site for its important wildlife, which includes grass snakes and a wide range of wild flowers such as ox-eye daisy, self heal and foxglove. The site lies on London Clay and is comprised of mixed deciduous woodland such as ash, willow and silver birch.

How to get there

Car parking (with 2 disabled bays) and bicycle racks are available at the Pavilion, off Westmorland Drive, Warfield RG42 3QP. For directions to Westmorland Park please visit our location map.
