Amongst the pleasures of a walk in the Surrey Hills is that one can revisit a location at varying times of year and experience an ever changing landscape.
For this tree identification walk, we are returning to the Sheepleas, above West Horsley, in the company of our local expert and founder member – Pamela Holt. We have walked parts of the Sheepleas on previous occasions but this event is back due to popular demand.
We will be walking through varied scenery which will take in beech woodland and open chalk grassland finishing with clay farmland where we will encounter a variety of trees, shrubs, wild flowers, fungi and ground cover plants.
Pamela has spent her career working with plants and trees. Her encyclopaedic knowledge always makes these walks an absolute joy with their combination of a rural amble and information about what we are seeing. Pam humbly claims not to be an expert but her knowledge of plants is much admired by our members.
At the end of the walk, you are welcome to join us for an optional lunch in the Duke of Wellington pub at your own expense.
Since this is a hillside stroll, please wear sensible shoes and either hats / coats or sunscreen to deal with whatever English weather is thrown at us on the day. The route will be on footpaths and hillside tracks so is not suitable for those with mobility issues or who struggle on uneven / hilly ground.
The event is not suitable for children but well behaved dogs on leads are allowed (but not in the pub).
The Surrey Hills Society member’s ticket price for this event is £5.00. The non-members price is £7.00.
Booking is essential: If you would like to join us would you please book on-line or complete and return the attached
