A circular walk exploring Staffhurst Wood (near Limpsfield), a beautiful old woodland which is popular with families and dog walkers and which bursts into a glorious display of bluebells in the late spring. This walk is part of the Explore Surrey collection, published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. The walk is relatively flat with just a couple of gentle slopes. The paths can get very muddy and slippery at times so good boots are a must (or wellingtons in the wetter months). When the paths are dry and firmer, it would be possible to take a rugged pushchair or disability buggy around the route, assuming this would manage the obstacles (described here and with photos in the gallery). There are no stiles or kissing gates, but you will need to negotiate a few staggered barriers and a couple of sleeper bridges (the narrowest of which is about 53cm wide). The staggered barriers are tight to maneuver around, but they are open and tall (about 1.1m tall) so it would be possible to push a pushchair straight through the barrier instead. Allow 1 to 1.5 hours depending on conditions underfoot. There are no refreshments, toilets or other facilities on the route. Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer 147 Sevenoaks and Tonbridge. This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private and public land. Information is included for your interest, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.
