Overview

 

The walk starts at the Titsey Place upper car park and descends the North Downs Way before heading west and climbing up the Oxted Downs.  It then goes north skirting Woldingham before turning east for Tatsfield where we stop for lunch.

In the afternoon, we head briefly towards the North Downs Way, passing, but not stopping at, the brewery tap of the Titsey Brewing Company.   Great views as we drop down and along the Pilgrim's Way for a while.  Grit our teeth for a short stretch alongside the M25.  Then it's up past Pitchfont Farm and the climb back up to the car park.

This is a walk in the North Downs so expect not only some great views but some climbs to great viewpoints.  The walk is graded as moderate rather than strenuous because the ascents are well spaced out during the day.  There is an especially steep climb up the Oxted Downs in the morning but it's quite short with a great view from the top.  The climb back to the car park in the afternoon is also steep but on an easy surface (and you will have walked down it in the morning so you will know what to expect).  

It is a good walk if you are a bagger of national trails.  You will walk on the North Downs Way, the Vanguard Way, the Greensand Way and the Greenwich Meridian Trail.  At one point, you will stand on all four simultaneously.

The lunch stop is at Tatsfield.  There are plenty of seats around the sweet village pond and there is a tea room of sorts with odd opening times.  Pub lunchers will be catered for at Ye Old Ship.
