Surrey and Beyond Ramblers (SABRE) is one of a new generation of Ramblers groups that challenges the traditional Ramblers image. Our mission is to encourage people of any age to get out there and walk and hike all over Surrey and beyond at the weekend and in the week. We are internet based and our membership is mainly drawn from Surrey, South West London and to a lesser degree the surrounding counties. You can get more information from Eric H our membership secretary. Please email him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
We are part of the Ramblers, a charity that works to protect and maintain the network of footpaths in the UK.  


Cornwall - 2014

The SABRE walks programme has a choice of two or three led walks each week in Surrey and South East England. Typically we have around 16 or more people on each walk, come rain or shine. In our programme you'll find everything from short easy strolls up to energetic 12 mile hikes. We organise social events and walking mini-breaks around the UK and abroad.


Lunch in the sunshine

Many reports show the benefits of walking including a report published in the Ramblers “Walk” Winter 2013 magazine which identifies 20 health reasons for regular walking including a reduction of 35% in the risk of developing heart disease and related strokes, a reduce risk of dementia, improved sleep quality, prevention of diabetes and a reduction in the risk of getting some cancers and improved chances of surviving other cancers.

 ABINGER COMMON, WOTTON & ABINGER ROUGHS - 10.45am Wotton EState Car Park, opposite Evelyn Hall. A varied walk through woodland and fields, and the grassland and ancient woodland of the Roughs where Darwin walked whilst staying at Abinger Hall in the 1870s, passing an 11th century Motte & Bailey . After a pub lunch( venue to be decided as the Abinger Hatch has a big party in that day& depending on nos may not be able to accommodate us) there is an optional visit to Goddards, at 3pm, limited number of places so email me if you want to come asap and pay £4 bank details will be provided.

Saturday 10th October 2015

UP AND DOWN BOX HILL - 10.30am Rykas Caafe car park."Though this is a comparatively short walk in miles it involves two ascents of Box Hill, so that it entails as much as, if not more, exertion than some of the longer rambles." I am not trying to put you off by that sentence, it is the opening line in my old Rambles in Dorking book! We'll start by walking along the river Mole, then ascend by 275 steps, once at the summit we gradually descend to Betchworth Park. Lunch is planned in Brockham at the Royal Oak, then it's off to Brockham Warren to climb up Box Hill, the final descent is down the gentler grassy slope. Pub lunch 7 miles.

Sunday 11th October 2015

KINGSCLERE - HANNINGTON -ECCHINSWELL -10.15am Anchor Road, Kingsclere. From Kingsclere we take a gentle climb onto the Downs at Hannington before joining the Wayfarers Walk which takes us along the top of the ridge, and becomes the race horse training gallops above Watership Down. Open country with fine views east and west. We drop off the Downs and pass through Sydmonton Court ( home of Baron Lloyd Webber) to Ecchinswell for a late light pub lunch (or picnic). From Ecchinswell we return along muddy tracks and open fields, to Kingsclere with its attractive St Mary's church. 10.25 miles.

APRES PRISON, THE OAKS PARK AND LITTLE WOODCOTE - 2.00pm Oaks Park Cafe, Banstead. Prior to this walk we are running a visit to The Clink Resturant at HMP Highdown, as previously mentioned, the bookings for this are now closed
When we get out of prison we shall start our walk outside The Oaks Café. We will head south through the Mayfield Lavender fields, which are not flowering at this time of year alas and head for Woodcote Grove house via The London Loop Path, getting great views of central London in the distance. From here we head north passing through the Little Woodcote estate where you might think you have stepped into rural America. Then returning via the picturesque woodland Sutton Countryside Walk to the start where tea, cakes and other goodies are available. 5 miles


Surrey Area Ramblers have finalised an Agreement with the MOD which enables Ramblers groups to use MOD car parks and walk across MOD land which is not already a public right of way. However walk leaders must register their walk with the MOD at least two weeks in advance if they are planning to use a MOD car Park or use MOD land that is not already designated a public right of way. For details of how to register please contact Eric H (This email address is being protected from spambots.
