Sunningdale to Chobham Circular

This walk starts in the village of Sunningdale but soon heads off across Chobham Common National Nature Reserve. The reserve is a mixture of woodland and open heath which was originally created by prehistoric farmers. Once common across the South East, the heathland is home to several rare and endangered species such as the Dartford warbler and nightjar. It's especially pretty during spring and early summer when the heather and gorse are in flower. The common has also been used in various film and TV productions.

The walk then explores some of the surrounding farmland before skirting the village of Chobham, going back onto the common itself and finally a gentle downhill back to Sunningdale across a fairly spectacular golf course.

There is a lunchtime stop at The Four Horseshoes pub in Chobham, as well as numerous places suitable for a picnic.

We revisited this walk on 30th August 2023. There were more golf balls flying than there were during Covid. This time we parked at Fishpool lake car park as it's roughly halfway to a coffee stop in Sunningdale when we lead our walking groups. Strava clocked it as 9.25 miles.

We did the walk on March 28th 2021,the last day in lockdown before things things started to open up so walking across the golf course was a breeze. The walk was very well directed and would have scored more highly but for the fact that it covered quite a bit of heathland and I have really had my fill of it this past year.
