Ringing the changes: protection for Wanstead Park’s bluebells


The Wanstead Park Liaison Group has identified three ways to improve protection of the park’s iconic bluebells.

“Firstly, the den-building area in Chalet Wood will be moved elsewhere, and the existing location, which has been badly trampled, will be fenced off. Secondly, heavier logs will be brought in to better delineate the paths. Thirdly, permanent signs will be designed to educate visitors, as will small temporary notices to warn the public off the bare patches to allow the plants to recolonise them,” said a spokesperson.
