Ashtead Park, Ashtead - Mole Valley

A C17 park, developed with successive owners throughout the C18 and C19 the well wooded open parkland estate was broken up and sold in the 1920s with the historic landscape split into two principle ownerships, the house, gardens and southern park a school, and the northern park with ponds managed as open access land now a nature reserve. The school has improved its management of the landscape amongst proposals for further facilities following a Conservation Management Plan since 2010. A joint heritage-led approach should support the park's historic character and balance its cultural services .
