Thursday and the volunteers from London Wildlife Trust at Camley Street Natural Park were hard at work again.
They were looking after the rich mix of naturally set and cultivated plants on the towpath and the path above between Maiden Lane (York Way) bridge and the Islington Tunnel.
This important semi natural landscape is home to a wide variety of urban wildlife. To many, it doesn’t look as pretty as the fully cultivated planting the other side of the Maiden Lane (York Way) bridge, in the private estate of King’s Cross N1C. But to those of us who are fans of urban wildlife and the complex ecological setting it needs, the Islington stretch of the Regent’s Canal at King’s Cross is a vital lifeline and deserves the wonderful work regularly done by staff and volunteers at Camley Street.
If you’d like to help look after this beautiful and rare green space in Islington, contact the London Wildlife Trust.
PS, Daisy dog did all the work of course!!!
