'An important fragment of the once vast Bagshot Heath, stretching to Bracknell and Windsor. The Country Park area has a recorded history going back to saxon times. The main road linking Chertsey Abbey and Frimley Priory skirted the base of High Curley hill. The area was called "whit heke mere" (white, clear water, surrounded by grass), probably a reference to Hammond's Pond, and the source of the name of the nearby village of Lightwater.'

'We arrange a programme of attractive and varied walks within an area that is centred on Surrey Heath Borough in the north west corner of Surrey. There are usually two walks each week, one mid-week and one at the weekend ... The walks give those taking part an opportunity to enjoy the flora and fauna of the countryside as well as find out about points of interest along the way. It is our aim to make the walk an enjoyable experience for all concerned.'


'In the early 1980s, the Windlesham Society's Footpath and Bridleways Sub-Committee set to work to produce a series of walks leaflets.  The aim was to record every footpath and bridleway in the Civil Parish of Windlesham (which includes Lightwater and Bagshot) through a series of circular walks which almost everyone could enjoy.  They ranged in length from just over a mile to four and a half miles ...'
