Getting There

A circular easy-access walk around Chobham Common, near Chobham in Surrey. Chobham Common is the largest National Nature Reserve in the south east. Managed by Surrey Wildlife Trust, it is a beautiful mosaic of rare lowland heath and woodland. Given the proximity of the M3 and several of Surrey's settlements, this walk offers outstanding views of uninterrupted woodland and heath. Along the way you will have chance to visit the Victoria Monument, commemorating a visit from Queen Victoria. The route has only gentle to moderate gradients throughout, with no steep sections. For the whole route, the walk follows a path surfaced with compacted stone. This can be uneven and a little rutted in some parts and can also have some surface mud, but it should be suitable for a rugged pushchair or a rugged mobility buggy for dry parts of the year. There are no stiles, gates, steps or livestock on route. Dogs are welcome on the common, in fact it is a popular dog walking spot, but you are asked to keep them under close control from 1 March to 31 August to protect the ground nesting birds. The paths are all bridleways so you may be sharing them with cyclists and horse riders. Allow 1.5 hours. The car park is now Pay and Display. Machines don't take cash, need card or phone to pay.

Chobham Common is located north of Chobham village and east of Windlesham village in north Surrey. It spans the M3 and has six visitor car parks. Our trail visits the northern part of the common, north of the M3, and starts at the pay-and-display large car park alongside the roundabout between the B386 and the B383. From this roundabout, turn north on the road signed to Sunningdale and the car park (with a 2-metre height restriction barrier) is immediately on your right. The nearest post code, GU24 8TE, will take you to the B386 at the edge of Windlesham. From here, drive east to the roundabout with the B383, turn left towards Sunningdale and immediately right into the car park. The car park has two designated parking bays for blue badge holders. The parking fee is payable by card or phone (not cash) and the cost for 2 hours is £2.60 (correct Summer 2018).

Very pleasant walk. No mud in November. There is always a little motorway background noise.
