Bookham Commons

UK»England»Surrey»Bookham Commons

Bookham Commons are made up of Great Bookham Common, Little Bookham Common and Banks Common which covers 1.51 square kilometers. All are part of the Saxon settlement of Bocham - 'the village by the beeches'. The commons consist of grassland - wet, low-lying meadows, woodland, scrub and 12 ponds. The ponds are home to all three British species of newt, including the rare Great-Crested Newt. The five largest ponds are man-made, formed for fish-production in the 17th-century.
