Oxshott Heath: horse rides
To the left is the horse ride along the southern perimeter of Oxshott Heath, which shortly veers left to run alongside and then north-west from Warren Lane; to the right is the track to the Heath car park, also public bridleway Esher 63a. The bridleway terminates on Warren Lane, so most riders fork left here.
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.
