Burnham Beeches awarded prestigious Green Flag award

Burnham Beeches has been awarded a prestigious Green Flag Award, in recognition of its high environmental standards, levels of maintenance and visitor facilities. It also won a Green Heritage Award.

Green Flag Awards recognise the best open spaces in the UK, and are awarded by a panel of expert judges for their top facilities and excellent use of green space.

Philip Woodhouse, Chairman of the City Commons Management Committee said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a Green Flag Award this year. It is a testament to all the hard work and dedication of all our staff and volunteers at Burnham Beeches who work tirelessly throughout the year to ensure Burnham is always a wonderful place for people to enjoy.”

Burnham Beeches is among a record-breaking 1,797 UK parks and green spaces which won the award this year. Other City of London Corporation sites which won the award include Epping Forest and Queen’s Park.

The City of London Corporation manages over 11,000 acres of green space across London and south east England, including Epping Forest, Hampstead Heath and Burnham Beeches, with many of its sites designated National nature Reserves and Sites of Special Scientific Interest for their unique ecology and rare plant species.
