Twickenham Rough

London Road, Twickenham, TW1 1AA Map

This linear conservation site links Twickenham station to Marsh Farm Lane and open spaces along the River Crane along a well-surfaced pathway through woodland and bramble thicket.

About the park

The Rough provides the final link in a surfaced route through open spaces along the River Crane between the station and west Twickenham. The open habitats here are part of a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation for the rough grassland, tall herbs, scrub and young woodland. The habitats also have value for breeding birds and bats. There are remnants of rail track and a buffer stop highlighting the land’s railway heritage.

Current conservation management measures for Twickenham Junction Rough can be viewed in the Lower Crane Valley Management Plan.
