WELCOME to my Website within which I hope to show you the  wonders of Hainault Forest from time immemorial - of History, Social History and the myriad of Wildlife to be found here which should whet the appetite of many specialities, and those who just want to enjoy the area for relaxation. Records and photographs gathered over many decades while living closeby are now supplemented with  photographs by Michael Rumble,  Colin Carron, Raymond Small and Michael Trump. We should remember those visionaries who in 1903 saved a small area of Hainault Forest for our use today.
