Second visit to the common. A great place to stroll and see a good range of wildlife. Amazing butterflies and possibly the best site for Silver Wash Fritillarys. Dog friendly shame the car parking is a bit pricey and you have to pay by phone.

Great Bookham Common is a great place for hacking. Well maintained bridle ways. A couple of areas get rather boggy. But over all you can ride round the lakes without getting muddy in the winter months.
