CROCKHAM HILL

Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and situated in GREEN BELT LAND. A part of the area belongs to the National Trust, as a result of original purchases by its co-founder Octavia Hill together with later bequests. Chartwell ranks as one of its most visited properties.

Crockham Hill Church

Up on the high ground of the Greensand Ridge are some hundreds of acres of common land, through which winds a section of the Greensand Way.

The Greensand Way follows paths which in many places give unparalleled views across the Weald to the south and extensive views towards the North Downs. Frequently the route leads through quiet, almost remote areas. Much of this sandstone ridge is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The stretch from Hindhead to Leith Hill has been part of the Surrey Hills AONB since 1958 and the Sevenoaks ridge, from the Surrey-Kent border to Borough Green, is included in the Kent Downs AONB. This route is suitable for family groups and seasoned walkers.

Down in the Valley lies farmland, once fields of hops, orchards and soft fruit to the sheep, cereals and oilseed rape of today.

The local farmers do excellent work in preserving the rich diversity of plants and animals indigenous to the area; and since their farmland edges into the very heart of Crockham Hill, it forms a major part of the village character - the genuine character of a living, working country community.
