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.

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