A large portion of Kingsbury, near London is taken up with the Fryent Country Park, this beautiful area boasts woods, fields, a farm and several fishponds. Covering over 254 acres with small woods and green fields, it’s hard to believe this wide-open space is in the London borough of Brent!  The Wooded hill that rises 282 feet, known as Barn Hill, is in the south-west of the park. Strangely, right at the top of this hill you will find a fishpond, there are several other fishponds scattered around the park. There are many types of trees to be found in the woods, including, ash, elm, English oak and hornbeam sitting alongside some fruit trees. This stunning area is one of the few places you will find the rare “Cardamine impatiens” , a bitter tasting, narrow-leaved-cress.
