ODL and our friends at Switchboard have been discussing some joint events and this is the first in what we hope will be many inclusive shared events to come with a jolly day out in the Surrey countryside together. Simon and Glenn will be running the day, Glenn as a member of both ODL and Switchboard will be our key person of the day!

This will be a slightly shortened version of a popular route, from Boxhill and West Humble, up to the point on Box Hill and up to Headley Heath before coming back along the valleys. We will start off by crossing the River Mole and going straight up Box Hill. After a pause for breath and water we we follow a gently winding path up towards Headley Heath and through the woods. Lunch and the possibility of a convivial refreshment stop before we turn south and by path and glade, to the return leg and a pretty stroll back to the station.

So, time to get out into the countryside! To gain as complete a change as possible and let your eyes roam over wide horizons and your ears rest from the cars, music and droning urban life.

The route may be viewed here.
