Made up of a network of paths and lanes criss-crossing an area of natural woodland which forms part of the Greensand Way, Sevenoaks Common is a pleasant, easy-to-reach place to stroll through the greenery of an English wood.
A designated Local Wildlife site, the Common was hit very hard by the Great Storm of 1987, with the majority of trees either blown over or badly damaged. Subsequently Sevenoaks Town Council, with the help of the Forestry Commission, worked hard to replant the woods with indigenous trees such as oaks, ashes, limes and rowan.
The woods support a range of birds, mammals, insects and reptiles, such as slow worms and the Speckled Wood Butterfly, while ferns and honeysuckle abound, and bluebells and foxgloves can be found in spring.
