Denbies Hillside car park to The Wotton Hatch walking circuit

Walking trail

The chalk grassland here supports myriad species of flora and fauna. There are some glorious views of the Surrey and Sussex countryside here to enjoy, as well as a pub to stop off at en-route. This is a fairly challenging walk so stout boots are recommended.
