Thursday 2nd May
Meeting point: White down Carpark, Abinger, Near Dorking, RH5 6SL (approx)
White Down (or White Downs) has one of the best displays of bluebells in Surrey, all concentrated within one area known as Old Simms Copse so why not bring your camera and come along. This will be a leisurely 5 mile walk also taking in Ranmore Common and Dunley Hill.
For those who wish to join me for a drink afterwards we will be heading to the Abinger Hatch pub (post code RH5 6HZ) for a swift half afterwards.
Easy Walks are for anyone who does not have a mobility difficulty, a specific health problem or is seriously unfit. Suitable for pushchairs if they can be lifted over occasional obstructions. Comfortable shoes or trainers can be worn.
Leisurely Walks are for reasonably fit people with at least a little country walking experience. May include unsurfaced rural paths.
Moderate Walks are for people with country walking experience and a good level of fitness. May include some steep paths and open country, and may be at a brisk pace. Walking boots and warm waterproof clothing are highly recommended.
Strenuous Walks are for experienced country walkers with an above average fitness level. May include hills and rought country, and may be at a brisk pace. Walking boots and warm waterproof clothing are essential. People in doubt about their fitness are advised to contact the walk leader in advance.
Non-members are welcome to join us for 3 "trial" walks before deciding to join us. You don't need to book in advance - just turn up on the day.
All our walks are graded to give you an idea of what each one will be like. If you're unsure of your fitness level, try a short, easy walk first. It's better to find a walk too easy than to make yourself miserable and exhausted.
All our walks are led by SYW members. Please follow their instructions, don't walk ahead of them, and let them know if you decide to leave the walk before the end.
