Bramley Bank Nature Reserve is 27 acres of dense woodland, with a natural
pond, managed by the London Wildlife Trust.
There are narrow rough paths through the wood, leading to a hidden pond, which is totally clear of rubbish. Did not see any
ducks, perhaps there is insufficient natural food and too few visitors with food. But there were millions of tadpoles in spring.
Main entrance is the end of Riesco Drive, off Ballards Way, near Coombe Lane,
Upper Shirley, no gates. There is a council car
park off Riesco Drive for Heathfield. Heathfield is a council training centre, with gardens and ornamental ponds open to the public.

Another view toward to small beach area, lots of water lilies.
The only construction around the pond, no idea what it was, but a safe place of Lucy to paddle. Totally clear water full of tadpoles.
