Overview

An undulating/hilly walk covering two of Surrey's hills, Leith Hill and Holmbury Hill. Due to it not being summer, with limited daylight time, this will be an early starting quick walk. 25 mins lunch stop on Holmbury Hill. Hopefully we can get in before dark, but just in case, bring a torch, and wet weather kit. Last mile on road.

Please bring a packed lunch. Pub stop at end.
