Hook Common habitat restoration

Hook Common is 73 hectares of common land in NE Hampshire comprising neglected heathland and ancient woodland.

A 3 year plan for renovation had been drawn up to restore this SSSI, one of the few surviving areas of open wet heath which survive in the Thames Basin. It will require careful management and liaison with the local community to achieve the necessary restoration.

Restore helped the community’s efforts by funded the removal of unwanted debris, including burnt out cars.
