A HUGE restoration project has been given the go ahead at Bentley Priory Nature Reserve thanks to large grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The fund, which distributes cash to sites of national importance and lists Harrow as one of its London priority areas, has handed the borough £59,500 for the wildlife area in Stanmore.
Furze Heath and The Greensward form part of the 55-hectare Bentley Priory site of special scientific interest (SSSI).
It contains unimproved species-rich grassland that is rare in London and in decline across the country.
Peter Peretti, volunteer warden for the reserve, said: "I have had the privilege of being associated with the management of Bentley Priory Nature Reserve for 25 years in a voluntary capacity.
"This grant made possible by Heritage Lottery Fund in order to restore and extend the SSSI grassland areas is of immense importance to the present and future value of this local nature reserve.
"It will be asserting its status as a site of metropolitan importance both scientifically and to the communities of Harrow and London."
In order to help the restoration project, the nature reserve management committee will be recruiting volunteers to carry out a range of tasks. Other volunteers will attend courses about the local habitat, including how to identify species.
The project, which will continue until early 2015, will return the grassland areas to the more open appearance that was a common feature of Victorian times.
Local schools will also get involved, including some hands-on help from GCSE and A-level students and an education pack to help younger pupils learn more about the area's biodiversity.
