Heathland on Horns Hill
This part of the plantation below Horns Hill has been felled and appears to be an area of heathland restoration. The south perimeter ride crosses the foot of the clearing.
Prince's Coverts :: TQ1459

Prince's Coverts are 349 ha of coniferous and deciduous forestry owned by the Crown Estate, and located east of Oxshott village. The Coverts are named after Prince Leopold of Belgium, who lived at Claremont Park in Esher: the Claremont Estate was purchased by the Crown Estate on his marriage to Princess Charlotte.
The Coverts are open to the public, although visitors are expected to acquire a key for the gates, which are sometimes locked. A permit is also available (at some considerable cost) for horse riders.
