Stringer's Common

Large_edge_habitatStringer's Common (Tasha Feddery)

Stringers Common, in north Guildford, is part of the Worplesdon group of commons and was once grazed common land.  It is much smaller (35.2ha) and less well-known than its adjacent cousin, Whitmoor Common but nonetheless important and is designated as a SNCI (Site of Nature Conservation Importance). It is owned by Surrey County Council and managed by Surrey Wildlife Trust.

Since grazing ceased, much of the site has been slowly reverting back to even age secondary woodland with only a few open areas of the original species rich unimproved grassland remaining.

Access via Brittens Pond Car park, off Salt Box Road, Guildford.

Size of Site : 30 ha / 75 acres
Designation : SSSI
Grid reference : SU 985 534
Habitat : Woodland
Walking Boots Advised Suitable for children
