Moat Mount open space
Nature ReserveScratchwood and Moat Mount form the largest area of woodland in Barnet. Scratchwood has areas of ancient woodland which is mostly oak and hornbeam. In the spring there are many woodland flowers like bluebells and wood anemones to see. Look out for Muntjac deer and woodland birds. Moat Mount also has extensive areas of wood, much of which was once ornamental gardens so it is very different in character to Scratchwood. Moat Mount is also home to an Outdoor Activity Centre providing endless activities such as orienteering, adventure course, camping and a permanent aerial runway. The centre is managed by Friends of Moat Mount Camp Site. Scratchwood and Moat Mount are separated by the A1 so you can’t cross the road from one to the other. There is an underpass down the A1 towards Apex Corner.
