London Rivers Week 2024: Beverley Brook Lost Nature Trail

June 22 @ 9:00 am - June 26 @ 4:30 pm

Join Friends of Barnes Common for this brilliant walk along the Beverley Brook in south-west London.

The purpose of the walk is to engage the community with some of the animal species that are missing from the Brook due to climate change and other human factors, or are critically endangered. Once you’ve completed the walk, visit our website to find out more about these species. Learn why they went missing or why are they endangered, and what we can do to prevent further loss and improve the biodiversity in the Brook.

The self-guided nature walk is aimed at the whole community and will involve downloading a pack, which will include a work sheet and a map, from the Barnes Common website (or picking up a hard copy from the Vine Road Recreation Ground Pavilion). Follow the map along the Beverley Brook, looking for cut-outs of missing species along the way. Write the names of the missing species on the worksheet and when finished, bring the completed worksheet to a staff member at the Pavilion at Vine Road Recreation Ground to collect your prize (or email it to us at

This event is held as part of London Rivers Week, a week-long annual campaign inspiring the public to celebrate all of London’s rivers and the many projects taking place to protect them (22-30 June 2024).

* Each ticket includes 1x Guide Sheet and 1x Prize. If you would like a prize for more than 1 person in your group please purchase additional tickets.
