Thanks to the generosity of our supporters Longbeech Wood is now in safe hands.

This 257 acre ancient woodland site near Charing is surrounded by Kent’s stunning North Downs and would once have been bursting with native wildlife and birdsong, and shining with natural beauty.

But despite Longbeech being classified as an ancient wood, there are no surviving hazel, ash or oak trees. Only a few straggly patches of bluebells lie buried among the undergrowth. Now in our care, we want to bring Longbeech to life by creating new thriving habitats for some of the area’s best-loved wildlife and making the wood accessible for visitors to come and explore.

Explore Longbeech Wood

As part of the research and surveys carried out to learn more about Longbeech, a drone was flown overhead to give a full view of the ancient wood. You can now explore the wood for yourself with our new 3D footage. Overtime, you will be able to view the changes to the site and see the transformation of Longbeech Wood into a thriving habitat once more.

We still need your help

We still need to raise the money for the work we need to do to manage restore and improve Longbeech. Please help us and donate today.
