A new map of 'untamed London' shows the parks and open spaces where Mother Nature reigns supreme. These are the 'marshes, woods, ponds and patches of wasteland across this great city [where] nature can still be found in its unmanicured state'.

The paper map contains details of 82 wild spaces, from the dark and ancient Oxleas Wood in Greenwich to windswept Wormwood Scrubs (good for spotting birds, and possibly jailbirds). The chart also comes with three short essays about London's varied ecosystems, including a piece by the author of Spitalfields Life.

Long-time readers of the site will have already figured that the map comes from the cartographic wizards at Herb Lester, whose Uncle's London, East London Companion, Freelancer's map and unusual suppliers guide we've covered before.

The new Untamed London map can be purchased for just £4, here.
