Chorleywood Common is approx 200 acres of grassland, and woodland. Managed by Chorleywood Parish Council it’s a County Heritage Site and has Local Nature Reserve status. Home to both Chorleywood Cricket Club and Chorleywood Golf Club
The Friends of Chorleywood Common was formed in 1990 and now has over five hundred members whose  principal objectives  are to:

  • conserve and safeguard the Common for the future enjoyment of local residents and visitors;
  • advise on and support the management of the Common; and
  • promote local interest in and awareness of the Common with events and publicity.
From time to time Friends of Chorleywood Common, organise a traditional “Beating of the Bounds” day when local families help by walking the entire length of its boundary. The procession around the parish boundary dating back to the 15th Century originally took place every year on Rogation Sunday  a few weeks after Easter and involves beating the perimeter with stripped willow branches.  Children in particular are welcomed so that they can learn about the Common and how its boundaries can be protected from encroachment. contact the Parish Council for the next date.
At certain times of the year you’ll find cattle grazing on some areas of the common.
