Length: 4.2 mi • Est. 2 h 5 m
An enjoyable circular walk from Reigate Heath, passing Reigate Heath windmill, Wonham Mill and pillboxes built during the Second World War. There are good views along the walk to the North Downs. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. The walk includes a few gentle gradients. The paths and tracks are mostly unmade and can be very muddy in part. Walking shoes or boots are required and wellingtons with grips are recommended for the winter months. You will need to negotiate a number of gates/kissing gates plus 6 stiles (all of which have open fencing surrounds which should be suitable for most dogs to pass through). You will be sharing some of the fields with horses and some of the paths have electric fencing alongside so take particular care with children and dogs. The walk crosses a golf course so please show respect for the golfers by allowing them to play their shots before you cross and watch closely for any stray flying golf balls. Allow 2 hours. If you are looking for refreshments, The Skimmington Castle pub is near waypoint 1, and The Black Horse pub is on the A25 near the bus stop at the start of the walk.

This circular walk in Surrey combines historic parkland, hill-side woods, grassy commons, and far-reaching views. If you don't know this area you will be amazed by the amount and variety of green space this close to London. Sections of this walk will be muddy after wet weather, and a couple of the climbs can get slippy. There is one busy road to cross, and a couple of other road crossings where care is needed. There is one steep climb (up Colley Hill). You will probably encounter horse riders and mountain bikers, but our route does not go through any farm fields containing livestock. Surrey Wildlife Trust sometimes grazes Belted Galloway conservation cattle on the final stretch, but this is the busy North Downs Way so the cattle are normally accustomed to walkers and dogs. You will need to negotiate steps and gates but there are no stiles on route. Allow 5 hours. There is a very nice cafe at the start (outside seating only), the Junction 8 cafe. The car park also has toilets. The other opportunities to get food and drink on the route are The Yew Tree (Reigate Hill just off the route), The Blue Ball, Spaghetti Tree and the Sportsman. It is recommend to stock up at the Junction 8 cafe before you set off and on a cold morning their toasted banana bread with honey will set you up perfectly.Show more

A circular easy-access walk around Gatton Park in Surrey, a beautiful area of parkland designed by Lancelot Capability Brown, giving you a glimpse into its diverse history. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. Gatton Park is very popular so arrive early on peak days otherwise you may find the car park full. The walk has several slopes throughout, including a couple of quite steep sections. Most of the route follows stone tracks but the sections of path through woodland can be muddy and slippery in places, particularly in wet weather. There are no stiles, steps or kissing gates on route, but you will need to negotiate some staggered barrier gaps alongside vehicle gates (which are approximately 1 metre wide but have tight corners). According to the National Trust, the wide gates alongside these staggered barriers are normally unlocked Easter to October. As such, it would be probably be possible to take a rugged pushchair or disability buggy around the route Easter to October, assuming you can handle the steep sections. Dogs are welcome in Gatton Park, please keep them on leads for the short sections where advised, as sheep are often grazing in the adjacent parkland. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours. There are toilets and a popular cafe kiosk (Junction 8) in the car park at the start of the walk. Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer 146 Dorking, Box Hill and Reigate.
