Woodlands of Box Hill - Saturday 17 May

Join us as we walk across the fields and forests of glorious Box Hill in Surrey. Located at the edge of the North Downs escarpment, where chalk gives way to greensand, views from here stretch across much of the South of England.

Named after its evergreen box trees, the hill is home to the largest native woodland of its type anywhere in the country. A noted beauty spot for generations, its scenery has been an inspiration to writers such as G. K. Chesterton and Jane Austen.

Our route will take us by impressive chalk slopes cut by the River Mole and then the hill itself. We will walk along the scarp face and beyond this make our way across fields and extensive woodlands.

We will finish, as we usually do, with food and drink in a local pub.

Meet: London Waterloo Railway Station (in the centre of the station, under the hanging clock, by Information desk)

Meeting time: 10.00 am (leaving on 10.24 train)

Price: £23 (includes transport and full-day guided hike) Please pay before the trip using the secure PayPal link at the top Price does not include meals and drinks

Hike level: easy to medium

Estimated return time to London: 9PM

Things to bring: water - at least 1 litre, packed lunch, waterproof clothing, hiking boots, camera - if you would like to take some pictures, money for end of day pub dinner
