Epsom Downs Circular Walk - 7 miles

This is a morning circular walk that takes us over Epsom Downs and into Headley for a drinks stop at The Cock Inn (some of you will have stopped here before on previous walks) and back around through Great Hurst Wood, The Downs and onto the Racecourse. It is likely to be cold weather so a brisk pace would be good.

The walk is a straight forward 7 miles with a few hilly bits but nothing too strenuous. I expect us to be back at the start point before 1.30pm.

Meet at the Car Park, that overlooks the Racecourse in front of the Tattenham Corner Pub, details as stated above.

Please note, there is no scheduled stop for a full lunch, only about 20 mins for drinks at The Cock.

If you are coming by train you will need to walk for a few minutes from Tattenham Corner train station to the starting point. Please allow for this when planning your journey. Tattenham Corner is on a line from London Bridge but it will require a few changes of trains to get to from Clapham Junction, Wimbledon etc. Please look at National rail enquiries website for details. Epsom train station is not far away but will require a much longer walk, and it's uphill all the way.

£2 please to leader for Meetup membership costs.

    Golly, 5 emails received so far saying there's space on walk, still 26 people waiting, the available places don't go in order do they, so one has no clue whether one will ever get a place, as the waiting list continues to expand ... ?

      I am on the list but can't go and I don't know how to remove myself as I'm new to this. So my place will be available. Can anyone instruct me how to remove myself? Many thanks :-)

    Just looked at the online map and the car park appears to be in the middle of nowhere. Could you please advise the best route because I don't want to end up in the wrong carpark again.
    Thanks

      Hi John, please read my carefully described instructions at the top of this event page, just underneath where it says Tattenham Corner (in blue). If you look at the map by clicking on the link you will see where the B290 is, and where it bends left towards Epsom, just north of Tattenham Corner Station. Zoom in and you will see The Tea Hut marked on the map, and where the B290 meets Tattenham Crescent, as decribed in my info. That is where the carpark is. Very easy to find, honest!

  • John C.

    Just opened my email to say there is a vacant slot on the walk and to say 'yes' before anyone else gets a look in. Please confirm I can join you. I promise I won't go the wrong car park this time!
