This tranquil walk through rural Surrey passes close to the neighbouring counties of Kent, East Sussex and West Sussex. The route passes a number of farms, past fields of sheep, cattle and horses and through woodland. There are extensive views to the chalk ridge of the North Downs, and the Weald to the south. Part of the route follows the Vanguard Way, a long distance footpath linking the London suburbs to the south coast. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. The route includes several climbs and descents throughout. The tracks and paths through woodland and farmland are mostly firm, but some sections can become very muddy and slippery in winter and after periods of rain so stout boots are recommended all year and wellingtons with grips in winter/after wet periods. You will need to negotiate a few kissing gates, a stream crossing (the stream is narrow but can be deep) plus three stiles (one of which is enclosed with wire fencing so dogs will need a lift over). You will be sharing some of the fields with livestock (sheep, horses and maybe cattle) so take particular care with dogs. Allow 2.5 to 3 hours, depending on the conditions underfoot. If you are looking for refreshments, the Plough Inn at the start of the walk is open all day. There are shops and other pubs in Dormansland village, half a mile from the start of the walk.

Information is included for your interest, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.

Good trail with stunning views from the top of Dry Hill. Mainly good walking conditions underfoot. Some interesting points of interest. The Plough is good for a pint and a sarnie.

Lovely walk, not too strenuous, some nice views during the middle section. Didn’t try the pub but seems well attended! Directions perfect and easy to follow when using the map too.

A really nice rural walk with wonderful views. Quite long, almost 3 hours even at a reasonable pace. Start and finish at a nice pub like the plough is ideal.
