Bentley Priory Nature Reserve
London/West : Bentley Priory Nature Reserve
Bentley Priory Nature Reserve is in the north-west of London, close to Stanmore and Harrow.
The place is a beautifully preserved nature reserve but it also contains Bentley Priory, this place was the RAF Fighter Command HQ in the second world war.
When London was burning, this place was never bombed, some people say that German Air Command did not destroy it because they wanted to make it their own HQ, this place was inside the RAF Stanmore Air Base but now its been opened to the public. It also has a deer park and a beautiful pond; named Boot Pond.
This is a very interesting war site as well as a nature reserve.
Although quite close to London the views are mainly of countryside, apart from the arch at Wembley Stadium
