The Covid Walks: Option 3 Coombe Wood
Option 3 of the Coombe antiquities walk is to visit Coombe Wood Local Nature Reserve.
Once at the top of Traps Lane - head across the road to Coombe Hill and then onto Henley drive where there is an access board. The nature reserve can also be reached via the A3 slip road, where there is a public footpath/cycle route. Hopping and Coombe wood are split in two (north- south) by the Kingston by-pass. The western half is more established and not as disturbed that the eastern half, which can be reached by an overbridge, although the latter is more 'alive' and biodiverse.
