Bury Wood is not fully accessible. It is close to accessible car parks at Chingford Plain, Connaught Water and our Chingford visitor centre which have disabled bays and paved surfaces. Bury Wood itself only has unmade paths and these can be muddy, but the area is relatively even and may be accessible in good weather.

Opening hours

​Bury Wood is always open


Bury Wood is a quiet, wooded area full of fascinating veteran trees including Grimston's Oak, an oak pollard reckoned to be about 350 years old.
