Newlands Corner

Newlands Corner

Newlands Corner and Silent Pool are at the heart of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Newlands Corner is a popular reserve with superb views of the surrounding countryside. There are 103 hectares (255 acres) of open chalk downland and peaceful woodlands to explore. The woodlands here are mixed, with some deciduous trees like oak and birch, plus evergreen yew. Some of the yew trees are hundreds of years old.

Newlands Corner lies on the chalk ridge of the North Downs at a height of over 170m (500ft). The Downs command fine views across the Weald to the ridge of the South Downs. Below the slope from Newlands car park lies the village of Albury.

In spring and summer, the chalk grassland is a spectacular carpet of wild flowers. The grasslands are grazed which helps keeps the grassland open and stops scrubby plants invading.

The car park at Newlands Corner can serve as a unit base with toilet facilities and a café on site already.
