Explore Southborough Common

Wander through the woodlands and marvel at the majestic veteran oak and beech trees which Southborough Common has to offer. Follow the woodland tracks or stick to the surfaced paths as there is access for all ages and abilities.

To help you get around here is a stylized map of the Common by local resident Andrew Ross.

3 circular walks were created as part of the “Secrets of Southborough Common” HLF project and a couple of guide leaflets were printed and available at the library. You can also download them so you can navigate your way around and reach the various points of interest highlighted in the leaflets.

Coming later this year are some markers on the ground at each point so you know where you have got to on your exploration around each route. Each walk has a theme and is of varied length so you can wander round depending on how much time you have.

The first circular walk is called “Secrets Circular” and is the longest of the walks and takes you round the Common and features 10 points of interest. You can view the walk leaflet here

The next two are combined on the same leaflet, walk 2 being the “Habitats Circular” and walk 3 the “Veterans Tour” and the leaflet is available here
