Tree identification in spring and summer is greatly helped by the size, shape and colour of the leaves. However, when the trees lose their leaves during the colder months, there are still many ways to identify them from their shape, bark and other features.
Margery Woods is owned by the National Trust and sits on top of the chalk landscape of the North Downs near Reigate. The woodlands have a diverse range of tree varieties and demonstrate great autumn colours and a rich array of flora. This easy 3 mile walk will be led by Surrey Hills Society member Pamela Holt, who is a plant identification specialist.
Please wear clothing appropriate to the weather conditions and, as it may be muddy in places, please wear strong footwear.
This event is not suitable for children or pushchairs and any members with mobility challenges must be able to manage a 3 mile (easy) walk with some uphill gradient.
There are no catering or toilet facilities available during the walk. Please bring water and any refreshments that you want. The nearest toilets are at Wray Lane car park or in Reigate.
Cost to Members: £5
Cost to Non-members: £9
