Children running at Hindhead Common

Children running at Hindhead Common

Hindhead Commons and the Devils Punch Bowl is one huge great playground; perfect for blowing away the cobwebs, rustling through leaves and climbing trees. Head over to the shepherd's hut at weekends to borrow tracker packs or download one of our trails to explore more on foot.

Help us to care for ground nesting birds

Spotted: a Dartford warbler in the gorse at Stonebarrow

This area is a haven for rare and protected native ground nesting birds which make nests and shelters in the heather and gorse. Please help us to care for birds like the Dartford warbler and nightjar by keeping your dog to the paths and not letting it run free through the ground cover - thank you.

The Celtic Cross

In 1851 Sir William Erle erected an imposing granite cross, with an unusual Celtic design, to help dispel local fears that the hill was haunted by the ghosts of highwaymen.

A3D Art

Jon Edgar creates a sculputure at Hindhead Commons

Artist Jon Edgar has been working with local school children to commemorate the creation of the A3 tunnel. The sculpture hasn't been named yet, why not email with your suggestions?


Tracker packs

At weekends head over to the shepherd's hut to borrow a tracker pack; they contain spotter sheets, pencils, binoculars and a compass to help your little ones explore the great outdoors.
