Bucks Free Press: Burnham Beeches

“Incredibly high” numbers of lockdown visitors to Burnham Beeches have caused erosion and trampling in the protected woodland – prompting pleas for walkers to stick to the paths.

The South Bucks woodland is a site of special scientific interest (SSSI), a national nature reserve and a special area of conservation, but with a huge influx of lockdown visitors, those who run Burnham Beeches have noticed some concerning issues.

The City of London Corporation, which owns the reserve, says Burnham Beeches is currently “extremely busy” and the “incredibly high” number of walkers has resulted in “very heavy erosion and trampling”.
