Highgate Woods Wild Life Hut


Situated at the top of the Sports Field, close to The Pavilion Cafe, this hut houses a delightful display of everything the visitor could possibly want to know about Highgate Wood.

There are pictorial representations of all wild life found in The Wood, The wood's history and news of current day scientific and schools projects.

Well worth a visit and there are remains here of an ancient kiln built by The Romans!

Click on the pictures below to read about some of the interesting areas of study......

This is part of the original Roman Kiln that was found in Highgate Woods during the archaeological digs during the 1970s.

It is approximately 2000 years old.

We would like to bring the whole Kiln back to is home here in Highgate Woods but will have to expand the Information Hut slightly to house it properly and to ensure its long term integrity.

We are currently trying to raise the funds to carry out the necessary changes to the building.

If you are interested in making a donation or would like to register your interest in this project please contact a Keeper or email Highgate.wood@cityoflondon.gov.uk

Below, are more pictures of interesting features of The Information Hut, but there is a lot more for the visitor to delve into in person, such as fungi, butterflies, moths and other insects, a study of all the trees in Highgate Wood and some great paintings.
