Holmwood Common, from Mill Lane
Holmwood Common, from Mill Lane
Part of the ancient Manor of Dorking, Holmwood Common was owned by King Harold before the Norman Conquest. Until the 19th-century the common was woodland. This changed when commoners began to use it for turf, timber and grazing, slowly transforming it into wood pasture. Some ancient oaks still survive today - almost 200 years on. In the 1920s commoning began to dwindle and the grassland returned to woodland.
