Notes: The Devil's Punchbowl is a large hollow of dry sandy heath to the west of Hindhead. It is owned by the National Trust, and was their first acquisition after being formed in 1895. It is overlooked by the 894' high Gibbet Hill, the second highest hill in Surrey. The area has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and sits in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). A three mile stroll revealed a few yews along the various footpaths. The most notable are recorded here.
