Description of Walk: Join Surrey Hills Society Chairman, Gordon Jackson, for a   walk that explores some of the woods and heathland of Puttenham Common, which is owned by the Hampton Estate. The Common is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is rich with bird and insect life. It is also of archaeological interest. There is a hill fort at Hillbury which is a Scheduled Monument, probably dating back to the Iron Age. We will walk up to the highest point of the Common, where we will see the site of the fort and enjoy the excellent views.

Dogs:  Well behaved dogs on leads welcome

Length of walk:  5.24 kms and involves a   total ascent of 111 metres. It will take about 1hr 45 minutes and is classed  as moderate.
