An oasis of calm is hidden behind Carshalton Ponds. It’s a mini wildlife haven where you can spot wildflowers, hidden meadows, foxes and slow worms. Join us on our brief pictorial journey around the grounds.
You can visit Sutton Ecology Centre in Carshalton anytime. The entrance is at the corner of Carshalton Ponds to the right of Honeywood Museum.
The area is 1.3 hectares and it opened to the public as a nature reserve in 1989. It has a long and varied history, and as far back as 1590 it was known as Cook’s Orchard.
