Bridleway to Queen's Drive
Bridleway to Queen's Drive
The alleyway ahead marks the start of public bridleway Esher 90, from Oxshott Heath to Queen's Drive, then along the Drive and Stokesheath Road, to Fairoak Lane. The post in the foreground does not point to the alleyway, but to the south, along a 'permissive' bridleway on the Heath which crosses Heath Road and Warren Lane to connect with public bridleway Esher 63a near Oxshott station.
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.
