22 March 2018 Walk over Epsom Downs and Centenary Wood.

We meet at 10:30. Start from the racecourse car-park on the Downs and within the track itself. Accessed from the roundabout by the tea-hut, go through the barrier and follow the road and racecourse round to the large car park.

The walk is about 5 miles and includes Epsom Downs and a visit to the Woodland Trust Centenary Wood, through which the W.T. have created several paths. There are some good views back towards the Grandstand passing several handsome memorial seats with WW1 dedications. The development of the Centenary Wood is progressing well as we shall see with considerable areas planted and compartments fenced. After the walk, we can go to the Derby Arms for a snack/drink/meal etc. I know several of you are not sure about fitness, but you are welcome to join us at the Derby Arms. Wives/Partners/ anybody else who might be interested, are welcome-the more the merrier. Contact Malcolm Davis at

A circular walk of 4.5 miles around the Polesden Lacey estate, through Ranmore Woods then crossing estate fields near the House, returning to the CP via a short length of the North Downs Way. Coffee stop, if required or determined by the weather, at the café near the entrance (no entrance intended to the house or formal garden). Walking through undulating country, nothing difficult, along well-defined bridle-ways or permissive estate footpaths, pace to ensure all can keep-up. However boots recommended, and please be ready for whatever the English climate brings.
