A 4.5 mile (7km) enjoyable walk from Dormans Station. The walk crosses Lingfield Park racecourse and golf course, passes through the Dormans Park estate and past the Cook's Pond Viaduct. This walk is part of the Explore Surrey collection, published through a collaboration between iFootpath and Surrey County Council.
The walk has a few steady gradients. The paths are firm for the most part but the unmade sections through woodland and the golf course can get very muddy so good stout boots are recommended. You will need to negotiate some kissing gates and steps, but there are no stiles or livestock on route. The walk crosses a golf course so please show respect for the golfers by allowing them to play their shots before you cross and watch closely for any stray flying golf balls. Allow 2 hours.
There are no pubs or shops along the route, but you can take an optional 10 minute detour to the village of Dormansland where there are public toilets, a shop and two pubs (The Royal Oak pub on the High Street and The Old House at Home pub on West Street).

This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private and public land. Information is included for your interest, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.
