Haslemere is an historic market town with 14th and 15th century origins. It is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Surrey Hills where the borders of Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire meet. The area is surrounded by hills, with Blackdown at 920 feet to the south and Gibbet Hill at 894 feet to the north. Much of the heathland and woodland is owned and protected by the National Trust and has become a popular attraction especially 'The Devil's Punchbowl' at nearby Hindhead which has been given a new lease of life since the long awaited opening of the tunnel which now by passes this stunning beauty spot.
