The walk will be led by the President of our Society, Chris Howard, who also sits on the Surrey Hills Arts Partnership.
As part of the walk we will visit last year’s sculptural bench installation created by artist James Tunnard, at a beautiful viewpoint, high above the Denbies Vineyard, overlooking Box Hill. This piece of art is the eighth in the ‘Inspiring Views’ programme, which opens up hidden views, undertakes conservation work, improves access and commissions artists to interpret the views through art. James Tunnard’s innovative design captures the essence of the surrounding undulating landscape in its curving shape. ‘Radius’ has been crafted from locally-sourced oak and provides a wonderful place to stop and reflect when out exploring in the Surrey Hills.
The walk also explores a small section of the North Downs Way – one of 16 nationally designated long distance trails in the UK. The NDW is 157 miles long and runs from Farnham in the west all the way to Canterbury in the east, following the chalk on the North Downs that run like a back bone across Surrey.
The walk will go at a leisurely pace, but you will need to be reasonably fit as there are some steep hillsides to climb on this walk. The walk is 4 miles (6.4kms).
