11 miles / 18 km

🟦 Booking opens Monday July 15 2024 (9 a.m. – 6 p.m.)

The section from Hayes to Whyteleafe is the longest leg of the Loop we have attempted so far and includes a fair amount of climbing as we edge ever closer to the North Downs. However, there are some delightful wooded sections and our climbing is rewarded by some splendid views. Our morning walk takes us westwards through Threehalfpenny Wood, to reach Addington Hill, where the observation point at the summit provides marvellous views over south London and as far as the City of London and Docklands.From here we descend to Coombe Lane, continuing south via Heathfield and Littleheath Woods, where we join the Vanguard Way as it heads to Newhaven on the south coast. In Selsdon Wood the route turns to the south-west, crossing countryside to reach Hamsey Green. Our final section leads into the Sanderstead to Whyteleafe Countryside area. To begin with the path crosses a flat plateau before dropping down steeply into Riddlesdown an area of chalk grassland offering opportunities for seeing wildflowers, birds and butterflies including the rare chalkhill blue butterfly. Eventually the path joins Riddlesdown Road, a former Roman road, which leads us down into Whyteleafe and trains to central London
