Oxshott Heath: path to Heath Road
Horse ride off Warren Lane towards TQ1461 : Heathland on Oxshott Heath. The path drops down off the heath to a crossing of Heath Road. The 'Welcome!' sign on the post in the foreground, which describes walkers being allowed on the land by agreement with the owner, is a little inappropriate: the land here is owned by Elmbridge Borough Council, but there is a public right of access to the land under an Act of 1904.
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.
