Haslemere is extremely fortunate. Not only is it surrounded by some of
South East England's most beautiful countryside, but large areas of its most
spectacular landscapes are owned and managed by the National Trust,
safeguarding their future and ensuring access for everyone forever.

The Black Down & Hindhead Supporters are a group who support
and help the National Trust enhance its local properties.

Through their Committee the Black Down and Hindhead Supporters:

  • Raise funds through subscriptions, donations, events and sales of publications.
  • In agreement with the National Trust, use these funds to pay for improvements on the properties which National Trust budgets cannot cover.
  • Meet regularly with the National Trust management to advise on all aspects of management plans, local issues and opinion.
  • Act as the local 'eyes and ears' of the National Trust and help to promote goodwill.
  • Send an Annual report and Newsletter to supporters.
  • Organise an annual Open Meeting to report the activities of the previous year.

The open spaces we help to look after (click here to see a map) are:

  • The Devil's Punch Bowl and Hindhead Common (1040 acres/420ha)
  • Black Down (690 acres/280 ha)
  • Marley Common (150 acres/60 ha)
  • Swan Barn Farm (70 acres/28 ha).
  • Plus: Golden valley, Whitmore Vale, Grayswood Common, Shottermill Ponds, Kingsley Green, Nutcombe Valley, Valewood Park, Roundhurst Common and The Quail
