The National Trust are working to restore Hindhead Common and the Devil's Punchbowl to heathland so I would suggest contacting them. Not far away from there is Lynchmere Trust which is also doing similar work. Most of the task is getting rid of bracken and birch trees though and both use cattle to help manage the land.
Another common ground cover plant found on these acid sandy heaths is blaeberry/bilbery/whinberry/whortleberry. Well worth considering adding these to the mix.
