The locked entrance to Edith Gardens

Edith Gardens is a 0.44 hectare Local Nature Reserve and Site of Local Importance for Nature Conservation in Berrylands in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames in London. It was designated in 1992.[1][2][3]

The site is abandoned allotments next to Tolworth Brook. The stream is of low wildlife value as it is in culvert with no vegetation. There is a dense thicket of elms, and a trip next to the brook which has mature oak, ash and sycamore trees. Most of the site is grassland dominated by oat grass and cock's foot.[3]

The entrance in the road called Edith Gardens, off Raeburn Avenue, is kept locked and there is no public access.
