Italian Riserva naturale Bentley Priory (Bentley Priory Nature Reserve)

Riserva naturale mantenuta benissimo che contiene al suo interno il monastero di Bentley che durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale fu il centro di comando della RAF. Durante i bombardamenti su Londra, questo posto fu lasciato intatto, si dice che i tedeschi volessero farne il loro posto di comando perché all'epoca si trovava all'interno della base aerea Stanmore della RAF, oggi aperta al pubblico. C'è anche un parco coi cervi e lo stagno Boot.
