Burnham Beeches 2002

Now regarded as one of the best examples of ancient woodland in Britain, Burnham Beeches in Buckinghamshire was acquired by the Corporation in 1880, in response to a threatened purchase by residential developers.

Despite its relatively small size of 220 hectares (540 acres), Burnham Beeches attracts around 500,000 visitors a year, who appreciate its tranquillity as well as its rich diversity of habitats and wildlife.


In conjunction with the Environment Agency and the Corporation of London two existing boreholes at the Hawthorn Lane end of the reserve were modified and temporary Isodaq data loggers installed. The adjacent Swilly Stream feeding from the reserve into the Swilly Pond was monitored using a Starflow data logger.


The existing borehole tubes were exposed and modified with T pieces with 25mm duct to the data logger enclosure to carry the submersible pressure transmitter cables, before fitting the top tube sections back.
