Ancient common on the Greensand Ridge where time comes home to sleep

Limpsfield Common was used by commoners for grazing their animals and collecting stone and firewood. Now, with its extensive network of footpaths and bridleways through patches of open heathland and large areas of woodland, the Common is a perfect place to enjoy the countryside, whether walking, cycling or horseriding. There’s an old Roman road to saunter along too.

Limpsfield Common is also a good spot for family outings and picnics, with open, mainly flat, spaces to run and explore.

There are magnificent beech trees, some around 200 years old, and the woodland is carpeted with bluebells in spring.

Also look out for the partly hidden, recently restored (to its war time condition) Second World War air raid shelter - experience what life was like during an air raid on a guided tour.
