Hankley Common
Rushmoor, Surrey

Hankley Commmon is part of MOD's Longmoor Training Area, with public access available - with the usual caveats of not interupting active military training (and don't touch strange metal objects!).

The common won a "Forest of Excellence" award in 1996, reflecting landscape, wildlife conservation and public access. The area constitutes some of the finest remaining heathland in Southern England.

Parking Details

There is free public parking at the common.

Additional Notes:

»

The common has changed a fair bit in 40+ years, with the many tracks around the area changing due to troop training and water flowing down the steep slopes! Though not exactly the same, the "look" of the common remains the same
