Croxley Common Moor is a 39.5 hectare biological Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Local Nature Reserve in Croxley Green, Hertfordshire.

The site is mainly grass heathland with some ancient woodland and hazel coppice. It has been designated an SSSI for its botanical interest, and over 250 species of plants have been recorded.

  • Easily accessed from Croxley Green. Lots of birds and insects and a good variety of plants and trees. The canal runs nearby and also it is bordered by the beautiful River Gade. Recommended.  more »
  • Very pleasant village side. Good place for walking.
  • Quite amazed by this pasture. It's an unpaved public road with cows, rabbits, birds and local people walking their dogs in this calm atmosphere. It takes you on a scenic route to the industrial area where there are new apartments.
