Hills and Ancient Woodlands of the Greensand Ridge - Saturday 7 June

Join us on a hike along the scenic Greensand Ridge following a trail across ancient woods, meadows and historic villages. With spectacular views stretching across several counties, the beauty of the area is such that it was home to none other than Winston Churchill. And these hills have played a role out of all proportion in the history of this country. In earlier times, the family of King Harold, the last of the Anglo-Saxon kings, held much of the area.

We will head along the picturesque Greensand Way that leads into the Chart Hills, journeying across the Surrey/Kent border as far as Winston Churchill's former home at Chartwell. The trail will then take us into the extensive scenic woodlands that lie north of the ridge.

After the day's discoveries we will reward ourselves with food and refreshments in a local pub.
