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.

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.

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).
