A fairly easy walk of just less than 4.5 miles (7km) around Norbury Park, a mix of woodland, chalk grassland and farmed fields. This walk is part of the Explore Surrey collection, published through a collaboration between iFootpath and Surrey County Council.
The walk includes several long but very gentle gradients. Most of the paths are firm stone tracks, but a few sections in the second half of the walk can get very muddy at times. There are no steps, stiles or gates on route. You will be sharing the bridleways with cyclists and horse riders and you may also come across timber lorries on some of the tracks. There is one section along a quiet public lane so take care of any traffic here. Temporary electric fencing is used to create pastures for conservation grazing at the sides of some of the paths, so take care with children and dogs. After periods of dry weather, the route would be suitable for the more rugged types of off-road pushchairs or disabled buggies. The walk is waymarked by posts with a cycle symbol. Allow 2 hours.
If you are looking for refreshments, there are cafe and toilet facilities at Bocketts Farm near to the start of the trail. Alternatively there are a couple of picnic sites along the route should you wish to bring your own food. Information is included for your interest, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.
Norbury Park is located just to the west of the A24 between Leatherhead and Dorking. The walk starts and finishes at the Fetcham Car Park accessed from the A246 Young Street (NOTE: there are two car parks on Young Street so make sure you go to the correct one). From the A24, turn onto the A246 and follow this over the river and under the rail bridge. At the roundabout, turn left (signed for Bocketts Farm) and then turn immediately right under the 2m height restriction barrier to enter Fetcham Car Park. Nearest post code KT22 9BW.
