Claybury park and woods in Redbridge, London

Claybury Park and Woods are located in the London Borough of Redbridge on the south facing slope between Fullwell Cross and Woodford Bridge. The park is around 68 acres in size and includes grassland, ancient woodland, scrubland and some water bodies. The park is home to a wide range of plant and animal species including birds, bats and some invertebrates.



The park was designed by Sir Humphrey Repton during the 18th century. Initially the park was a part of the Claybury Hospital (which has now been converted to the gated housing colony - Repton Park) though now it belongs to London Borough of Redbridge. The park has it all - surfaced path for cyclists and horse riders, a play area, woodland art trail, and also an outdoor gym.










How to reach?

Fairlop tube station is the closest underground station. Catch the 275 at Barkingside and get down at the stop opposite Wannock Gardens. Alternatively you could take the 169 towards Clayhall and get down near Fullwell Avenue for the road entrances.
