This is a short and easy walk up to and along a stretch of the North Downs west of Dorking, with wildflowers, butterflies and birdsong to enjoy in summer; and in April one of the best displays of bluebells in Surrey.

The walk starts from Wotton and drops down through fields before crossing the North Downs railway line and climbing up to join the North Downs Way beside one of the many WW2 pill-boxes that ring the southern approaches to London, see Additional Info'.

It follows the North Downs Way westwards through the woods and open flanks at the edge of the ridge, affording great views to the south. It offers a springtime diversion at the southern edge of Old Simm's Copse, one of Surrey's largest and most magnificent bluebell woods.

It heads back by dropping down through chalky lanes and following a parallel track through fields and National Trust woodland.
