This National Trust managed common has miles of walking trails to try. The area covers 650 acres and consists of ancient woodland, grassland and several ponds. It's great for wildlife with butterflies, dragonflies, deer and a variety of birdlife including chiffchaffs, blackcaps and willow warblers. The common is also good for cycling with a number of flat trails to follow.
If you would like to extend your walking in the area then you could climb the nearby Leith Hill.
