Gunnersbury Triangle Nature Reserve :: Shared Description
The reserve has been created out of the triangle of land which was originally created when the London and South Western Railway linked up with the District Railway. Although originally accessed by a bridge from the west of the triangle, this fell into abeyance at some stage after the construction of London Transport's Acton Works. Lack of development meant that the area was able to evolve its natural habitat, particularly following the Second World War.
Despite its small area, it displays a variety of habitat, including woodland, wetland carr, pond and grassland. It became a nature reserve under the London Wildlife Trust in the 1980s after a campaign to prevent development, and is open at all times.
