Hydon’s Ball and Heath

One of The National Trusts earliest acquisitions and a memorial to one of its co-founders, Octavia Hill.  It’s one of the highest points in Surrey and the steep, wooded south-facing slope commands magnificent views across the surrounding countryside towards the Sussex border.  Lovely walks cross the peaceful heath and woodland which is a wonderful mix of many trees and a surprise of non-native shrubs planted by British garden designer, writer and artist, Gertrude Jekyll.
