Join the Hiking Club for a walk around Box Hill! To attend, you will have to purchase a Full (£10) membership, and request to follow our ‘2020-21 Hiking Club Members’ Facebook group for further information about the hike. Full details of the hike will be released once you have signed up to come!

The walk traverses a series of hills in a clockwise loop north and east of Box Hill & Westhumble station: Norbury Park, Mickleham Downs, Headley Heath and finally Box Hill itself. There are many fine viewpoints and in several places you can see your earlier route from a new perspective. Box Hill (named for its abundant box trees) and Headley Heath are both owned by the National Trust, which has introduced special breeds of sheep and cattle to restore more of the downland to its original ‘unimproved’ condition. This unfertilized land is rich in wildflowers and supports many butterflies: 40 of the 58 British species have been found on Box Hill.
