North Downs guided walk

We're borrowing another Trust place for the start of the walk - Clandon Park. Since the Clandon Estate used to belong to the Weston family, and Sir Richard Weston created the Wey Navigation, we thought it was fair...

  • Booking essential

From Clandon, we head to Hatchlands Park, where we may stop for a brief refreshment break and to use the toilets, then press on up to the North Downs ridge and enjoy the level path to Newlands Corner. We potentially have another break at Newlands (this is a 10 mile walk after all) and then walk through the rather lovely yew trail to Merrow Down. From there it is all downhill back to the lodge gates at Clandon - designed, rumour has it, by Capability Brown in 1776. We then follow the public footpath round the back of Clandon to the car park.
