A circular walk from Boxhill and Westhumble Station in the village of Westhumble, passing through part of the Polesden Lacey Estate, Ranmore Common and Denbies Vineyard. The route follows part of the North Downs Way National Trail. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. This is a hilly walk with several long uphill stretches: make sure you stop regularly to appreciate the impressive views! Parts of the route can get muddy so stout boots or shoes are recommended. You will need to negotiate many gates/kissing gates but there are no stiles or steps on route. A couple of the short fields you cross may be holding sheep so take particular care with dogs. There are a few sections of road walking along quiet lanes so take care of any traffic at these points. Allow 3 hours. If you are looking for refreshments, there are a few options. There is a cycle shop cafe at Boxhill and Westhumble Station and The Stepping Stones pub is 300m from the station (turn right along Westhumble Street to reach this). Denbies Estate vineyard, about two thirds of the way round, has a restaurant and cafe which is open to the public. Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer 146 Dorking, Boxhill & Reigate. This walk follows public rights of way that cross private and National Trust land. Information is included for your interest, but please respect National Trust bylaws, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.

Great short day walk from London. Perfect for visitors to the area, especially as you can include lunch at Denbies Wine Estate for a treat! Track in good conditions with some steady inclines. Lots of alternative tracks to make it shorter or longer. Highly recommend.

some slow and steady uphill but rewarded by long downhill sections , some beautiful rolling green hills.

Lovely walk but note on page 5 where it tells you to fork left after 50m, passing through an old gate .... there was no gate!

Between point 2 and 3, where you enter a large field through the smaller right hand gate, there are two large Oak trees in the field. You should be heading towards the one up the slope on your left, which is closest, rather than the second one further across the field.
