Enjoy a walk along this beautiful and interesting section of the North Downs way with the NDW Trail Manager Peter Morris, our Society Chairman Chris Howard and Pete Lambert from Experience Guildford.

This 12.5 mile walk follows in the footsteps of Pilgrims along the North Downs Way National Trail. Through the sandy tracks of Chantries Wood, climbing to the Church of St Martha on-the Hill with glorious views across the Tillingbourne Valley. Onwards to Newlands Corner where Agatha Christie staged her disappearance in the 1930’s and across the scarp above Silent Pool and the Albury Estate. Through the chalky grass slopes of Netley Heath and St Barnabas Church on Ranmore Common and into the vineyards of Denbies with Box Hill above. Bring a packed lunch or eat at Newlands Corner Visitor Centre.  For the return, use Box Hill & Westhumble or Dorking Deepdene Train Stations, or bus 32 from Dorking train Station.
