The Surrey Hills is a nationally important Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) covering a quarter of the county of Surrey. Its boundary stretches from Farnham in the west to Oxted in the east and extends all the way to Haslemere in the south.

The area has inspired many artists and writers and is very popular with visitors; an extensive network of foot paths, bridleways and cycle routes takes walkers and cyclists to remote villages, isolated hamlets and beauty spots like Leith Hill, Box Hill, Holmbury Hill and the Devil’s Punch Bowl.

The bustling market towns of Dorking, Farnham, Guildford, Reigate, Haslemere and Cranleigh offer cobbled streets, twisting lanes, centuries-old buildings and castles as well as a variety of shops and restaurants.

There are also plenty of tiny hamlets and villages with Norman and medieval churches, extensive village greens, characteristic old inns, pubs and blacksmiths. Many houses in the area are in a characteristic “Surrey style” introduced here by the Arts and Crafts movement.

Winding country lanes with high banks as well as old signs and milestones reinforce the rural character of a bygone era. The Surrey Hills is also a place where many historic houses and extensive parklands are open for visitors.

The stunning scenery of the Surrey Hills AONB boasts a traditional landscape of rolling hills, wooded hillsides and waterways that combine with vibrant market towns, picturesque villages and historic country houses to make it an ideal place to live in, work in and to visit.

With more than 200 striking images and a detailed and informed text, The Surrey Hills is the ideal companion guide to this magical place, that will be prized by resident and visitor alike.

Beata Moore has been passionate about photography since the age of twelve when she received her first camera. Initially interested in recording nature – she has a postgraduate degree in botany – as time progressed, she widened her interests and now equally enjoys taking pictures of landscapes and architecture. Beata’s previous books are: Cracow – city of treasures, A year in the life of the New Forest, The Square Mile, A year in the life of the Cotswolds, The Channel Islands and Portrait of Wimbledon. Her photographs have been published in magazines and books and her work has been exhibited at galleries in London and across the UK. She lives in New Malden, Surrey.
