For many years the commons have been at the heart of the local community. At over 874 acres, the wide variety of landscapes offers the perfect escape to the country.

From the Thames riverbank to woodlands and wildflower meadows, there's a lot to discover whether you're on foot, bike or even horseback.

For families, it's a natural playground with plenty of space to run around, fly kites, build dens or simply walk the dog. The miles of walks include links to the Chiltern Loop and Thames Path.
