pub walk

A circular pub walk from The Fox Revived in Norwood Hill near Horley in Surrey. The Fox Revived is a lovely country pub where you can choose to dine in the cosy nooks and crannies or in the airy garden room. The walking route explores the surrounding tranquil countryside, a mix of small woodland copses and large open fields and pastures. Aside from the wildlife and livestock, don't be surprised if you don't meet another soul on your journey. The walk has several gentle slopes throughout. Half the route follows tarmac lanes and stone tracks, with the other half crossing pastures and fields which can get very muddy. There is a 300 metre stretch along the edge of a country lane at the start and finish of the route and also a half mile stretch along a country lane in the middle of the route. The roads do have a 40mph speed limit and narrow grass verges to walk along, but they can be quite busy. The middle road stretch can be avoided if you prefer, by re-tracing your steps from the outward leg. You will cross several pastures that may be holding cattle at times. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates, footbridges and stiles, some of which are very tall with enclosed wire surrounds so dogs will need a lift over. Given the design and nature of these stiles, only small dogs that are easy to carry over stiles are recommend for the walk. Allow 2.5 hours.

Lovely quiet walk, a weird variety of stiles (!) and grateful for the wellies. Again didn’t particularly like the road bit but it was fine for adults. Lovely to explore this bit of countryside and of course a drink in the lovely festive pub at the end was required :)

Echo what has been previously stated some of the stiles are in disrepair and arguably dangerous. Drink and lunch at The Fox Revived fab as always.

Too much road... some stiles are falling apart and can be dangerous
