One of the most spectacular views in South East England was opened up in October 2014 with funding from the Surrey Hills Trust Fund and the North Downs Way National Trail Partnership.
Uncontrolled growth of scrub was removed from Newlands Corner on the Albury Downs to open up this spectacular spot and show the far reaching views across to the Tillingbourne Valley.
The work was undertaken by Connection Crew, a leading event and logistics supplier and one of the UK’s most successful Social Enterprises with 25% of their staff being ex-homeless and profits going to Charity for the homeless.
David Wright, Chairman of the Surrey Hills Board comments;
“This key viewpoint off the North Downs Way National Trail is the introduction to the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that most drivers associate with the Surrey Hills. We hope to encourage drivers to slow down along the A25 and allow their passengers to appreciate our beautiful protected landscape”.
Money donated to the Surrey Hills Trust Fund will help to support projects like this that benefit the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Fund has been established in partnership with The Community Foundation for Surrey who promote local giving for local need, encouraging those who live in and enjoy the Surrey Hills to help preserve their local landscape.
