A wood pigeon forages in Warren Hill, near a gravel path weaving through autumn oak trees.

Warren Hill is effectively the 'summit' of Buckhurst Hill and the forest here once formed the centre of a deer park belonging to Henry VIII. The area is home to a number of impressive veteran trees and sports some spectacular grasslands ideal for picnics in the warmer months.

Things to do in Warren Hill and Powell's Forest
