Ham Lands

Ham Lands is a 72 hectare Local Nature Reserve and Site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature Conservation in Ham in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.[1]

The site is a large area of grassland and scrub bordering the River Thames. It was previously excavated for gravel and then backfilled with soil from different areas of London, creating a variety of habitats which attract many bird and butterfly species. Meadows have a wide range of wild flowers,[2][3] and there are many plants which are rare in London.[1]

There is access from Kingfisher Drive.[4]
