Naphill is a very fortunate village. It has one of the largest and best commons in the Chilterns: 155 acres (63 hectares) of woodland, paths, bridleways and open glades - all available for our use. The Common has ancient trees, woodland birds, deer, ponds with rare plants, rare fungi, a Romano-British farmstead, ancient banks and ditches, a long history and much more. It is part of the Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a site of Special Scientific Interest, Grade 1.
The ′Friends of Naphill Common′ group aims to help conserve the Common and make it more accessible to the public. We organize walks, talks and various events; research the history of the Common; explore its archaeology; study its flora and fauna, and just enjoy its riches.
To achieve this, the Common needs friends. If you would like to be a friend of Naphill Common please join the group. The subscription is only £5 per person (£2 for under 18′s) per year. For this you can do as much as you like. The more friends the Common has the more we can do and the more we can enjoy our fine Common.
