Region

Local Group
London
Distance
18ml.
Start Time
08.49 (8.16 from Victoria, 8.23 Clapham Junction 8.34 East Croydon)
Route
Meet at Gatwick Airport station. From the train platform at Gatwick, go up the escalator through the barriers & find the large group of self-service ticket machines close to signs saying Platforms 1 and 2. (Please inform leader if coming by aeroplane!)

A footpath starts at the station (yes! Really it does) & soon into woodland far from the madding crowd. Across commons & parks to Reigate where there is a shorter walk option. Up & over the Downs with more commons to conclude. Mostly good firm tracks & only a few muddy places unless there is a long period of very heavy rain. Finish at Belmont for local buses and trains

General Notes
Average pace of 2.5 miles per hour. Buy returns to Gatwick. Bring a torch, food & drink, picnic stops only, woodland facilities. Very helpful but not essential to send your name & membership number in advance in case there are last minute changes to arrangements. Text or WhatsApp walk leader
Finish
