  • Visitor Information

Following the meandering bends of the River Crane, this delightful park is a hotbed of wildlife. The riverbanks are home to a thriving colony of Marsh Frogs and the very rare Water Vole.

Peppered with small clusters of woodland, Crane Park houses the largest crack willow tree in the country. There is also a fantastic cycle track that runs across the length of the park.

At the Western end, the skeleton of an archaic gunpowder mill remains. Built in 1766 the blast mounds, scattered grinding wheels and sluice gates are still visible. The distinctive shot tower, now a listed building, soars into the sky and is used by the London Wildlife Trust as a look-out point
