Box Hill centenary celebrations

2014 marks the 100th anniversary of Box Hill being given to the National Trust by Leopold Salomons. A wealthy local, Mr Salomons was keen to protect the rolling green hills of Surrey from property developers so bought some land around Box Hill in 1913 and formally gave it to the National Trust the following year.

We're celebrating by giving Box Hill's iconic viewpoint - the Salomons memorial - a facelift; come along to enjoy the view over Dorking and all the way to the South Downs.
