Description

Details

It is a walk full of small pleasures: a nature reserve and lake with Japanese flag down the stream below the gardens and park with its manor Nymans part in ruins; a cemetery in Slaugham with a yew tree 600 years old, about 10 meters in circumference; the ruins of Slaugham Manor; then a walk to the river Ouse - with the incongruous sight of a semicircular arch and columns in the middle of nowhere - and later through fields and woods to the ancient village of Balcombe fine.

Cost

The trip is £13 per person (members only £8) which includes the guided hike and return train travel from the group departure station listed at the top of this event.

All events are limited to twenty-five person for a better quality of service and have a comfortable group.

Remember that being Sport Club, the existence of Membership Day and Year (£ 5, £ 40) including insurance is mandatory.

Trip Highlights:

• See the famous Box Hill viewpoint with far-reaching views over Sussex
• Breathtaking hiking through the woods and hills of the North Downs
• See the twisting hills roads of the Olympics 2012 cycle race where the cyclists did 9 laps of this spectacular section

Hike Description

Box Hill is located on the North Downs and lies within the Surrey Hills area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is also part of the Mole Gap to Reigate Escarpment Site of Special Scientific Interest. As well as its natural beauty, Box Hill also plays host to a more recent fort built in the 1890s to help defend England from a possible French invasion and a semi derelict folly from 1815.

We shall be passing by the route for the 2012 Olympics cycling race - at the steepest point, considered to be the best for viewing due to the reduced speed of the riders.

Food

We'll stop during the hike for a snack lunch so please bring food and drink. We’ll visit a pub after the hike where we can get refreshments.
