Wed 24 May 2017: FARLEY GREEN AND WINTERFOLD FOREST (6miles)

Leisurely to moderate walk through varied terrain including farmland and the beautiful forest of Winterfold, with it's mixture of pine plantation and native forests. Not too many ups and downs.

No.8 is further away from the village of Farley Green, and the signboard is right at the back of the carpark so cannot be read from the road.

Sat 27 May 2017: THE SURREY HILLS 4 PEAKS CHALLENGE!! (13.5miles)

My 3 Peaks walk is old hat now so I have decided to extend it to 4, Holmbury Hill, Pitch Hill, Winterfold Hill, and Leith Hill. I have also changed the start point and direction (change is as good as a rest). This is a hilly walk!! A lot of this walk is on hard sand but there will be some sections that will be muddy if wet. There are some steep ascents and descents on this hilly walk. The morning section of this walk is 8 miles and the afternoon 5.5, you may want to bring a snack to keep you going to lunch. Depending on time and weather we MIGHT be able to stop for coffee mid morning at the Leith Hill Tower. Pub or picnic lunch, there is a village shop selling tea, coffee, and snacks etc. No dogs.
