Following the Covid-19 public health restrictions, Perivale Wood reserve is now closed until further notice.


We hope to bring you a series of natural history inspired virtual events on our social media platforms to keep the flame alive.


Perivale Wood is one of Britain’s oldest private nature reserves and a bird sanctuary since 1905. Keeping it safe and intact means that access is restricted to Society members but we have an Open Day each April and many natural history events for the public throughout the year.


If you would like to support Perivale Wood Local Nature Reserve and the work of the Selborne Society, then annual memberships are available from £10 per person, or £15 per couple for the year.

"Selborne is the secret, private parish inside each one of us."
