Chobham Water Meadows

Chobham Water Meadows is a scenic and peaceful 23.5 hectare SANG site.

SANG stands for Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace.  These areas are created as enhanced and attractive greenspaces that provide an enjoyable natural environment for recreational use and are provided as an alternative to the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area (SPA).

The Thames Basin Heaths SPAs are internationally important heathland sites that support rare birds such as the Dartford warbler and Nightjar that who are highly sensitive to visitors.  SANGs are therefore provided to encourage recreational use to reduce pressure on the SPA.

This beautiful location offers many natural paths for walking and includes a 2.5k circular route along the banks of the River Bourne.  Visitors are welcome to exercise their dogs, to cycle, to run, or just to amble through this special place taking in the meadow vistas, woodland boundaries and the gentle River Mill Bourne.
