Countryside Walk – 7ish miles

Sunday 10th March @ 9:15 am to 4:00 pm

Here are details of my countryside walk on Sunday 10 March 2024.  Approx 7 miles (ok maybe 8).  An early (for some) start:

Meet at East Croydon train station ticket hall at 9.15am.  (This will delight Barry.)

We catch the 9.31am train to Chipstead.   We return later in the day from somewhere further down that line, sorry not sure which station yet, so if you don’t want to use Oyster / contactless, suggest buy a return to Tattenham Corner.   Or if you prefer, buy a return to Chipstead and a single for the rest at the relevant station later.   (The whole line is in Oyster zone 6.)

We will walk via the outstanding landscape around Chipstead, Mugswell, Colley Hill, Walton Heath etc.   Do bring some packed refreshments and drink with you as there is no planned indoor lunch stop.  However I will try to include a café and or the Sportsman pub at Mogador – but doubtful there will be room or time to sit and have a proper meal.   We will likely reach our destination and return station around 3.30pm where there may be an opportunity for a more leisurely pub stop.  But don’t bank on it.

Sorry if details are a bit sketchy, left it a bit late to check and my first choice has been thwarted by a rail replacement bus between Purley and Redhill.   That does not impact Tattenham Corner line.

Wear boots or wellies in expectation of mud.
