Overview

'An important fragment of the once vast Bagshot Heath, stretching to Bracknell and Windsor. The Country Park area has a recorded history going back to saxon times. The main road linking Chertsey Abbey and Frimley Priory skirted the base of High Curley hill. The area was called "whit heke mere" (white, clear water, surrounded by grass), probably a reference to Hammond's Pond, and the source of the name of the nearby village of Lightwater.'
