A Boot Up The Surrey Hills

The Surrey Hills was one of the first areas in England to be designated an Area of Outstanding National Beauty (AONB) in 1958. It stretches across a quarter of the county and includes the chalk slopes of the North Downs, which run from Farnham to Oxted, and the deeply-forested Greensand Hills.

The North Downs sweep into Surrey from the east and terminate at the end of the Hog’s Back. They have a distinctive topography with a steep, southfacing scarp slope and a shallow, north-facing dip slope with the valleys of theWey and Mole being important corridors through them.

Of the ten selected walks in this book, seven of the routes are along the North Downs Way between Compton and Reigate, and the remaining three are at prominent locations along the Greensand ridge, including Leith Hill, the highest point in south-east England. They range from 3 ¾ - 7 ½ miles and suit the needs of families, groups of friends or individuals looking for a gentle stroll or a longer walk, and reflect the many varied facets of the area – its people, its history, and its landscape and will help first time visitors to experience some of the great scenery the area has to offer. Many of the walks feature a pub along the route.

Halsgrove’s small-format guidebook, containing maps, photographs and useful information will ensure a great walking experience. Packed with colour, the book is an ideal reminder of a visit to the Surrey Hills.

Mike Cope lives in Woking, Surrey and has been walking the Surrey countryside on a regular basis with local and national walking groups for over 20 years. He is a freelance writer for Country Walking magazine, and has published over 30 walking routes for Surrey, Hampshire and Staffordshire. He has a Ph.D. in analytical chemistry, and when he isn’t walking or writing, works as a lab manager for a multinational pharmaceutical company.

Imprint: PiXZ Books. ISBN 978 1 906887 95 7, hardback, 110x155mm, 64 pages. Published April 2010. Reprinted August 2016.
