Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Hindhead is a small town in Surrey, 2 miles from Haslemere, and at 800 feet is the highest town in the county.

Its development dates from the 1880s, after Professor John Tyndall claimed that the air was as pure as in Switzerland. Among those who came to live here were George Bernard Shaw and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

The countryside nearby is heavily wooded, and Hindhead Common features gorse, heather and pines.

Nearby is the deep combe known as the Devil`s Punchbowl, and other beauty spots include Gibbet Hill and Waggoners` Wells.
