The common is bursting with wildlife. Sit quietly and you might see shy roe deer, foxes, badgers or rabbits. There're many birds and insects too and on a warm sunny day you might even spot reptiles such as the common lizard.
50 things to do before you’re 11 3/4
Dress in old clothes and go on an outdoor adventure – splash in puddles, get muddy, run, jump and explore. Fallen trees are great for balancing on and playing hide and seek. Pick up sticks and make a den or look out for mini beasts creeping nearby.
Start an energetic hike with us
Put on your hiking boots and join the Greensands Way
, which runs through Limpsfield as it travels from Haslemere in west Surrey to Ham Street Kent, or the Vanguard Way
, from Croydon to the south coast at Newhaven.
Sit and admire the views
Take a little stroll from the Scearn Bank car park to sit and enjoy the wonderful views looking south towards the Weald. A perfect way to end any day.
Let's go fly a kite
Follow in the footsteps of Major Baden-Powell (brother of Robert Baden-Powell) and fly your kites on the Common. Baden-Powell is said to have flown slightly bigger kites though; in fact man-lifting kites.
