Chorleywood Common Original Painting
Chorleywood Common, Hertfordshire
76 hectares of grassland and woodland. Its central location makes it very accessible for many local people and there is a nearby London Underground station. It is set in an undulating landscape surrounded by a variety of buildings. The Parish Council is responsible for managing the common managed by local rangers. This work is supported by the Friends of Chorleywood Common.
The common is open to all on foot although cyclists are not permitted. There are permissive horse trails. A golf course on the common is private although non-members can play for a fee and cricket club is also hosted by the site.
The mix of grassland, ponds and woodland provides excellent conditions for a wide range of flora and fauna. A notable feature is the three types of grassland which include communities of heather, orchids and harebells. In turn these support many butterflies, moths and other insects. All three native species of newt are found in the seven ponds on the common.
The Council has adopted a detailed Management Plan for the Common and the implementation of this plan has resulted over the last few years in the recovery of all ponds, the steady return of heather and gorse to the heathland areas and a magnificent annual display of wild flowers and associated butterflies in the chalk meadow. Dogs are now requested to stay on a lead May- September
