Hike the North Downs Way- Stage 8 Hollingbourne to Wye

Hollingbourne

£10.00

As a hiking business, we are exempt from the rule of 6, By signing up to our event you are agreeing to our COVID 19 guidelines as outlined here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Sly8wbiT3VabjhkDjX_f6AFFG2pcoU-e5sK0OPjSy74/edit?usp=sharing Join me as we tackle the North Downs Way- a 153 mile/246km waymarked National Trail that starts in Farnham in Surrey and ends at the White Cliffs of Dover. I'm going to break it down to manageable day hikes from London, linking the trail with train stations across the Southeast. I'm skipping ahead a bit past the river medway crossings- Cuxton station is hard to get to and the train times don't work out well. Plus, who wants to cross a bridge shared by a motorway for a countryside hike? So we've skipped ahead to Hollingbourne, which is back into lovely Kentish countryside. On this stage 8, we will continue to follow the North Downs Way on wooden tracks and rolling fields. We will pass a pensive Pilgrim and a chalk cross carved into the hill as a war memorial. This is a longish section at 16 miles, so make sure you have a head torch as we will probably end in the evening hours as this is the weekend the clocks go back. Our hike ends in Wye, which is on the same train line as Hollingbourne. GRADE: Intermediate/Challenging. 16 miles /26km on good paths. 441 meters total ascent. On good paths and tracks, but can be muddy. It's a long hike, so we will be taking this at a moderately fast pace to get in before dark. MEETING POINT: Due to Covid, we can not travel together and organise group tickets at this time (however, you are welcome to self-organise if there is a lot of you leaving from the same place!). There are also a number of discounted tickets available if you book in advance via trainline.com. Meet me at Hollingbourne Station. You have some options as far as getting there: 8:30 train from St Pancras (change at Ashford) that gets in at 9:56 or a direct 8:25 from Victoria that gets in at 9:43. Either way, buy a return ticket to Wye station as it's just a few stops down the line. If you are driving, leave your car at Hollingbourne and you can get a direct train back to it at the end of the hike. COST: £10 organiser fee payable on RSVP. We have temporarily raised the price of walks to be able to accommodate smaller groups. As soon as it is safe to take larger groups, we will re-asses our pricing. For this hike, I will be taking a maximum of 20. What to bring: Head torch, Face covering and hand sanitizer, Lunch, snacks, water, suitable clothing and hiking footwear. We will not be stopping at a shop or a pub so have everything you need for the day!

Hilly Denbies Vineyard, Box Hill & Stepping Stones 14km / 8.5 mile hike

Dorking (Main) Train Station - Southern Railway

£10.00

As a hiking business, we are exempt from the rule of 6. By signing up to our event you are agreeing to our COVID-19 guidelines as outlined here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Sly8wbiT3VabjhkDjX_f6AFFG2pcoU-e5sK0OPjSy74/edit?usp=sharing GRADE: Intermediate 14 kilometres / 8.5 miles mainly on country and woodland paths and hilly. Total ascent about 415m / 1300ft. About 4 hours of hiking plus picnic lunch. Despite being relatively short, this hilly circular hike is anything but boring. We start at Dorking station and quickly make our way into Denbies, the biggest vineyard in the country, climbing the first gentle hills of the day. We then join a short stretch of the North Downs Way, then walk through the pretty village of Westhumble, and after crossing the railway line and the A24, make a short stop at public toilets at the foot of Box Hill. From there, we head into the charming little village of Mickleham, where we walk past the pretty church, some parts of which are over a thousand years old, and then climb up Mickleham Downs, where, in the shade of old yew trees, we have our well-deserved lunch. We then descend a steep hill which takes us to the back of Box Hill. The longest (long but gentle) climb of the day leads along Juniper Bottom, and takes us up that famous Box Hill, from which we enjoy great panoramic views over Mole Valley, and where we stop at the National Trust Visitor Centre. There are toilets there, coffee, ice cream, and a tap with drinkable water. The last highlight of the day, after another long and relatively steep descent, are the Stepping Stones on the River Mole. We cross the river here, and then make our way back to Dorking station, where the hike ends. MEETING TIME: 10:55 outside Dorking Main station. COST: £10.00 organiser fee paid on RSVP TRAINS: There is a train from London Waterloo at 10:02 which arrives at Dorking Main at 10:55, journey time 53 min. You can also join this train at Vauxhall at 10:06, or at Clapham Junction at 10:11. Please use toilets on train, as currently there is only 1 toilet open (for both men and women) at Dorking station, and if we all use it, the hike will start much later than planned. TICKETS: You'll need to buy a Day Return ticket to Dorking, which costs £12.50, or £8.25 with Network Railcard. Due to Covid-19, we currently cannot travel together and organise group tickets. If you choose to do so on your own, please remember to follow all current government safety and social distancing guidelines. https://ojp.nationalrail.co.uk/service/timesandfares/London/Dorking/251020/0945/dep/251020/1600/dep WALK STARTS: 10:55 from outside Dorking Main station LUNCH: We will stop for a picnic lunch around 13:00. Please bring packed lunch and plenty of water to keep hydrated, as we won't be stopping to buy them. WALK ENDS: Approximately 16:00 outside Dorking Main station, but it always depends on the pace of the group we have on the particular day. It may be a bit earlier or a bit later. RETURN TRAINS: There are several trains an hour from Dorking to London. CONTACT: Phone number for the day:[masked] WHAT TO BRING: FACE COVERING, SANITISER, lunch, snacks, water, suitable clothing and hiking footwear.
