Chorleywood Common is a Local Wildlife Site which is a pleasure to visit and explore at any time of the year. This year the Countryside Management Service completed a new Greenspace Action Plan to guide habitat management and site improvements over the next five years.
To explore Chorleywood Common in its vibrant autumn glory, circular walking trails are signed and accessed from the main parking areas. Thanks to its well-draining soils, access remains good even during winter months. Please note that cycling is not permitted on the Common. The site is easily accessible from A404 Rickmansworth Road, or by rail via Chorleywood Station on the Metropolitan underground and Chiltern national lines.
If you are visiting in the coming months, look out for the excellent new wood sculptures. In the near future, information boards and maps will be renovated to provide further information about the habitats and history of the site; a new community activity programme is also underway, as introduced by Chorleywood Conservation Ranger, Daniel: “It is important that the local community is fully invested in the Common and part of my role is to make the Common accessible to a wide range of users; we are achieving that through regular walks, talks and practical activities that everyone can get involved with.”
