Purchased in 1999, Crown Meadow has since been planted with a variety of native tree species as part of the Woodland Trust’s ‘Woods on your Doorstep’ project. The scheme has the aim of creating community woodlands which provide areas which are valuable for public recreation, local wildlife and which will eventually become important features of the landscape. Set in the flood plain of the River Darent, Crown Meadow covers an area of 5.5 hectares just to the north of Sevenoaks between the M25 and M26 motorways, and is surrounded by farmland. The wood is important as apart from isolated trees and new planting, there is no significant existing woodland in the floodplain area. The site was planted with a mixture of oak, ash, wild cherry, hornbeam and rowan, amongst other species. Paths run around and through the plantations of young trees, making the site easily accessible for walkers, although the paths are unsurfaced.
