Welcome to the Gatley Carrs Website
Nineteen acres of woodland, scrubland & grassland plus 4 acres of Willow swamp with 2 ponds - doesn't sound like much but Gatley Carrs is an oasis in the suburbs. Popular with dog walkers, the area offers a variety of routes in and around the woods, scrub and meadows or alongside the brook.
Enjoyed by nature lovers since the 1850s, the area continues to be a local haven for wildlife and has recently been awarded official Local Nature Reserve status by English Nature.
The Gatley Carrs Conservation Group (GCCG) has planted over 200 trees and shrubs as well as installing benches and bins. Our voluntary group works for the benefit of this conservation site; maintaining the woodland and meadow. Future projects aim at improving water quality and ridding the Carrs of the dreaded Japanese knotweed.
