City Corporation to launch new Covid-19 Recovery Grant Scheme for Square Mile SMEs

Warren Hill is grazed by our conservation herd of longhorn cattle in July and August. If you see our cows while in the area, please be mindful that they are livestock and not pets, keep a respectful distance, and keep dogs on leads around them.

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.
