The Hogs Back is beautiful – large swathes are designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and other parts as Areas of Great Landscape Value. The remainder is covered by farmland, ancient woodland and is dotted by pretty villages, such as Wanborough, Puttenham and Compton.
The spectacular chalk ridge is steeped in history.
The Hogs Back is a great resource for people in the local area attracting walkers, joggers, cyclists and horse riders and forms part of London’s Green belt. However, this is set to change and parts of the Hogs Back are under threat from development. In particular, Blackwell Farm (once owned by Lord Dennis) is set to provide space for 3250 new homes and the result will be the loss of a beautiful landscape forever. So please help us protect the Green Belt by signing our petition at this link.
