Puttenham Common

The common is the remains of what was once a large area of lowland heath. Heathland shrubs such as ling, bell heather, and gorse remain in the more open areas. The common forms part of the Hampton Estate.
The site is dominated by silver birch, bracken, and wavy hair grass. Oak and Scots Pine are also in abundance.
The main feature is the Hill Fort at Hillbury which is a Scheduled Ancient Monument, probably dating back to the Iron Age, but with greater evidence of occupation during Roman times.

Moor Park

Moor Park supports an alder carr (wet woodland) and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. A nationally rare habitat, it is the only example of deep-water alder swamp in Surrey and is mostly deep and inaccessible. Most of the reserve can be viewed from a small boardwalk and path, which runs around the reserve.
