Ashtead Park, Ashtead - Mole Valley

Begun as a C17 park, Ashtead developed with successive owners throughout the C18 and C19. Broken up and sold in the 1920s the historic landscape split into two main ownerships, the house and surrounding grounds a school, and the northern park as open access land for Surrey Wildlife Trust. Following the policies of a Conservation Management Plan from 2010 the school has improved its management of the landscape amongst proposals for further facilities. A joined up heritage-led approach should guide the conservation of the remaining landscape to understand its significance and sustain its values.
