This site played a part in our history. Terrain is a little inclined, and varies between muddy and very sandy. Push-chairs, buggies, or bicycles might be difficult to manage. There are also many bridle paths, so watch out underfoot.



This historic site is reached by parking at one of two locations - 51:18.98N 0:27.20W or 51:18.85N 0:27.10W - then following well-marked trails on foot. GPS fix is variable in the trees, but there are plenty of open spots where it is clear and strong. At the right time of year you may find ripe wild chestnuts and pine cones lying around, although their removal may be subject to legal restriction. (Remember these are the staple diet of some of the local wild life, and you wouldn't want to deprive them, now would you?) In your wanderings you will also pass interesting information boards detailing aspects of the location, its flora, and fauna. They're a bit on the high side for younger children to read (but who ever heard of a child refusing a piggy-back?).




Whether you choose to pay to enter this location or not, there is an attached picnic area, with bench tables, and whilst the site is close enough to the M25 that traffic noise intrudes slightly, it is pleasant enough in its forested surroundings. There is pleanty of scope for wandering around the heath should you wish to loiter.

A very nice find :) Amazing that Amberel was FTF here on Navicache after so long. It would do better on OpenCaching but that's only been around for a year!

Thanks for bringing us to this most interesting place. It think the idea of keeping it a "secret" destination for the virtual is a little futile, given that is is now signposted from the A3, but perhaps it was not when you set the cache? TFTC, Sandvika #1041

Found today while doing some Groundspeak caches in the area. Despite the noise, Ockham Common is a lovely area.

Thanks for the cache,

Rgds, Andy
