Coulsdon - Farthing Downs - Chaldon - North Downs - Coulsdon

The walk begins in the suburbs of Croydon and in no time is high on the North Downs with views not only of open country ahead, but also of the central London skyline behind. The woods ahead are full of bluebells in spring and by the time you come across Chaldon Church with its extraordinary fresco, you could be in deepest Surrey. A stretch of the North Downs Way brings you back to Happy Valley with its wonderful summer meadows. In this SSSI you will come across typical downland flowers, orchids, grasses, the rare but locally common yellow rattle and many other wildflowers... and the badger setts are still to come!

Did this on a dull day in November. The weather could not spoil this excellent walk on good paths. Great views. An ideal walk if staying at Alderstead Heath Caravan Club Site.

A nice gentle stroll through the south Croydon countryside. Not too hilly. We visited the Fox pub, a diversion shown at waypoint 31, stayed there for a few pints and decided to head back to Caterham station rather than the official end-point of Coulsdon South as it was more convenient for us to head home from here. One could argue we didn't complete the walk although we definitely did the mileage!
