Full of hidden treasures

The Commons are bursting with delights, and as the seasons change and works are undertaken there is always something new to capture your attention.

We wanted to share some of our favourite treasures with you; they are just waiting for you to discover them.


Nature that will inspire

From the unique geology that has supported stunning rock formations and natural sandpits, to habitats that attract a wide range of plants and animals, the Commons have it all.


Commons events

Sharing the treasures of the Commons with you all is one of our main aims and when it’s safe to do so we would love to see you at our events or discuss your ideas for your own sensitively planned events.

In previous years the Commons have hosted guided walks, charity runs, outdoor theatre, the annual Rusthall bonfire, family fun sessions and a photography competition, amongst many others. The stunning winning images from our 2020 photography competition can be found here.


Let's talk about the Commons

Grab a cup of tea and that biscuit (that you know you shouldn’t) and enjoy reading one of our blogs. They feature all manner of news and stories about the Commons, selected for your reading pleasure.

If you would like to put pen to paper and write a few words about the Commons, we would be over the moon to hear from you.
