Chobham Common

Chobham Common, sometimes called the Wastes, is a very large common, mostly bare of trees, and gives a sensation of open moorland more usually associated with the North of England. The majority of it is owned by Surrey County Council and, at 1,400 acres, is the council's largest open space. It is well used by horses as well as walkers and some of the paths can be very muddy. Schemes are being considered to try to separate users to make paths better underfoot for walkers. Despite all these users, it can still seem a lonely place in the middle of the common, with not a house to be seen.
