pub walk

A circular pub walk from The Star, near Leatherhead in Surrey. The Star is perfectly placed for exploring the adjacent common and on fine days there are gorgeous gardens and decking to enjoy some alfresco dining. The walking route explores the stunning Ashtead Common National Nature Reserve, with views across open countryside, large expanses of ancient woodland and pretty lakes along the way. The route has just a few steady but long climbs and descents. Some of the paths (including those on the first stretch to the ponds) are relatively firm tracks with just some surface mud, but after this point the woodland paths and grassy rides can become fairly soft/muddy in winter and after periods of rain. There are no stiles or gates on route. You will be sharing many of the forest tracks with horse riders and cyclists. Dogs are welcome in the common as long as they are kept under control. Approximate time 2 hours.
