  • Merstham

The fourth stretch of the North Downs Way guides us from the town of Merstham, renowned for its quarries that supplied ‘Reigate Stone’ during medieval times for constructing portions of Westminster Abbey, Windsor Castle, and the now-disassembled Nonsuch Palace.

Departing from Merstham, the trail ascends along well-trodden paths, weaving through woodlands, passing churches, a 19th-century tower, and opening to mesmerizing viewpoints. As we approach Oxted, the path descends through fields and waste land before traversing the M25 and leading us to Oxted station.

As you book onto this walk you will be giving the option to join Boots on Adventure’s WhatsApp lift share group to allow us to lift share between stops.

We will be stopping for a bring your own picnic lunch at around mid-day.
