About the event

Join us to celebrate a walk that is closely associated with the National Trust's Founder: Octavia Hill

This is a stunning 11 mile walk through some very picturesque surrey countryside

We walk through Hydon's ball & heath one of The National Trusts earliest acquisitions and a memorial to one of its co-founders, Octavia Hill. It’s one of the highest points in Surrey and the steep, wooded south-facing slope commands magnificent views across the surrounding countryside towards the Sussex border.

We then pass through Winkworth Arboretum which is a National Trust-owned arboretum which exhibits large collections of azalea, rhododendron, and holly on slopes leading down to landscaped garden lakes.

A lovely part of the hike across the peaceful heath and woodland which has a wonderful mix of many trees and a surprise of non-native shrubs planted by British garden designer, writer and artist, Gertrude Jekyll.
