Event description
7-8 mile circular walk from Dorking to Polesden Lacey

About this Event

Join North Downs Way Ambassador Michael Vergien on a free 7-8 mile (5 hour) walk that will take us through Denbies Wine Estate to lovely Polesden Lacey. We will learn about the natural and human history of the area including: the geology of the area, plants and animals. We will picnic on the grounds of Polesden Lacy (weather permitting). Participants may choose to bring their lunch from home; alternatively, we will be stopping by the farm shop at Denbies if anyone would like to pick up cheese, crackers, or other picnic type foods. When we get back to Dorking, we will end with a pint at Cobbett's.

Start: Meet us on the South side of St Martins Church (RH4 1DW) in Dorking at 10:30 to leave by 11:00.

Finish: You will be back in Dorking by 15:00 at the latest.

Walk Level: This is a moderate walk as there will be some climbs and descents on our walk.

Equipment: You will need sturdy footwear and a water bottle. Some parts of the walk can get muddy and slick depending on weather.

Dogs: Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.

Children: 7-8 miles makes this walk unsuitable for young children. Participants must be 14 and older. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.

Travel: It is a 15 minute walk from Dorking Main Station and there is a car park just North of St Martins at the end of Mill Ln. This car park has two sections, one is short stay and the other is long stay; make sure you park in the correct area.
