Walking became a passion for many of during the pandemic and over the various lockdowns. Every week in the newsletter we shall recommend a local walk, but with half term coming up, here are a few to whet your whistle. Mr Cole recommends two beautiful walks.

Woldingham Countryside Walk

Explore hidden valleys, chalk downland and varied woodlands on this 5 mile scenic route. Allow at least 3 hours to enjoy the full route, while several shortcuts give you options for shorter walks. The route is marked by signposts and waymarks bearing the walk symbol. Full details and maps can be found here.

Shabden and Upper Gatton Parks Circular Walk

The walk starts south of Chipstead at the car park behind Elmore Pond and Chipstead Meads Recreation Ground. Walking here is a true adventure! If you want a day out that will exercise your mind as well as your legs, then this is the walk for you. Every turn, it seems, reveals glorious views across picturesque valleys. Woodland and meadow are plentiful, as are bird song and the buzz of insects. You won't find yourself completely cut off from civilisation though, there's a pub en route. Full details and maps can be found here.

London LOOP

Mr Sturt has been enjoying walks around the London LOOP. This circular Walk London route consists of 24 sections between Erith station and Purfleet. Taking the London LOOP is a great way to get to know London better. Made up of 24, mostly flat or gently sloping sections, its combination of beautiful open spaces like Hainault Forest Country Park and Bushy Park, historic buildings (Hall Place and Black Jack's Lock & Mill), makes this an enjoyable walk. What's more, you can access each of the 24 walks via public transport. Up to date map information can be found here.

All Trails

Miss Horton recommends the app AllTrails. Simply search which area you would like to walk in, and the App suggests many walks which can be filtered based on distance, difficulty, elevation, and even by what sights you would like to take in on the way. The app then gives you directions on how to get there and allows you to navigate your walk on a clear map. All the walks recommended here can be found in AllTrails.
