Welcome to Shabden Park Estate which is owned by
Surrey County Council and managed on their behalf by Shabden Park
Farm and Surrey Wildlife Trust.
By way of introduction, I am Bob Crompton and from
the 1st April 2007, I will be the new Countryside Ranger for this
site following the untimely death last year of my friend and colleague,
David Hill. I am a native of the West Riding of Yorkshire but have
lived and worked in Surrey for many years and look forward to helping
Mark and Kirstie in their farming enterprise and continuing David’s
vision for the conservation of this special place and welcoming
you, the visitor!
This site falls within our new Eastern area and
our new team will be active here from now on as we go about managing
the woodland and access paths for the benefit of the wildlife and
to provide for the quiet enjoyment of it and the landscape.
We ask that you remember that this is a working
farm with livestock around at any time of year. The farmer is helped
a great deal if you keep to the recognised and waymarked paths and
keep your dog on a lead at all times. Please respect the ecological
interest of the site by not picking flowers and leaving the habitats
If you have any questions about the estate then
please call me on 07968 832511 or email me at

urgent issue then please call 01737 552744.
