About

/ / / / THE FLEE COLLECTIVE PRESENT / / / / Elephant and Castle Urban Forest 'Come and play in South London's secret woodland' An exhibition showing you the hidden secrets of the Haygate Estate, capped by a guided tour of the forest. Elephant and Castle Urban Forest is London's secret woodland. At its heart are 450 majestic trees, mostly London Plane, which for decades have been thriving hidden behind the towering slabs of the Heygate Estate in a part of London best known for concrete, cars and a big pink shopping centre. Glimpses of the woodland can be seen by outsiders along the bustling New Kent Road and on the northern corner of Walworth Road. Today most of this mature forest is a sheltered and verdant semi-wilderness thriving in between the remains of the almost empty social housing estate. A few people know the secret and are having fun in there. Some residents remain and the evicted return to enjoy the green space. In clearings guerrilla gardeners have established new allotments and in the old playgrounds people still congregate. This forest has entered an exciting new phase of its life. www.facebook.com/elephantandcastleurbanforest www.elephantandcastleurbanforest.com / / / / FLEEZINE / / / / Made entirely from material created by audience participation at FLEE.
