TQ1461 : Heath Road

taken 6 years ago, near to Oxshott, Surrey, Great Britain

Heath Road
Heath Road
Heath Road is a one-way street providing a short-cut between Warren Lane and Fairoak Lane across Oxshott Heath. Before the railway was built, the road went straight ahead down to Fairoak Lane (then Steer Lane), where the bend to the left can now be seen to take the road under the railway line: TQ1461 : Railway bridge over Heath Road. At this time, Heath Road was no more than a sandy track across the heath. In the foreground, a horse ride crosses from Warren Lane to run along the edge of Oxshott Heath, and along an alleyway onto Queen's Drive.
Oxshott Heath :: TQ1361
An area of common land, now mainly woodland, extending to around 80ha, contiguous with Esher Common to the north, and straddling Warren Lane and Sandy Lane. Although owned by Elmbridge Borough Council, Oxshott Heath is managed by a board of conservators established by a provisional order made under the Commons Act 1876, and confirmed by the Commons Regulation (Oxshott) Provisional Order Confirmation Act 1904. Unusually, the common was exempted from registration as common land under the Commons Registration Act 1965. Some small parts of the common remain heathland, particularly on the slopes north of Oxshott station, while efforts have been made to recreate heath near the sandpit west of Warren Lane.
