Coppetts Wood and Glebelands: the nature reserve on the North Circular

Exceptional biodiversity in N12

Coppetts Wood and the Glebelands, in North Finchley, London, were designated a Local Nature Reserve by the Borough of Barnet in 1997. You can find maps of the reserve here. The reserve has five distinct sections, with different habitats: Coppetts Wood, the Scrublands, Coppetts Close Triangle, the Green Link and the Glebelands. Learn more about them here.


The Coppetts Wood Conservationists meet each Sunday morning throughout the year with the aim of maintaining the nature reserve, increasing its biodiversity and enjoying some sociable exercise. If you come along, you could find yourself digging a new pond or raking out an old one, clearing bushes or bramble to encourage a more varied habitat, or planting trees or a hedge. Find out more about why we do what we do, and if you’d like to get involved, please email
