History:This piece of land, with a large amount of flora and fauna was hemmed in by railway lines in the 19th century. In the 1980s it was threatened with development but, due to a large public protest, it was bought by London Borough of Hounslow in 1984 and designated a Local Nature Reserve in 1987. It is managed by the Chiswick Wildlife Group which is affiliated to the London Wildlife Trust and is run by volunteers.
