|Pollarded Trees at Earlswood|
At Tilburstow Hill, you cross the busy B2236, an old Roman Road that once went from London down to the Sussex Coast. This can clearly be seen if you look down the line of the road. However the modern road is the A22 some way to the east and even this has been by-passed. Before this however, you reach Leigh Pond, a site of special scientific interest that has existed for hundreds of years. Viewing the pond proved to be quite difficult since there were a number of private houses around its perimeter, whose residents were quite protective of their view! However, you can get a peek at this idyllic spot that was a haven for wildfowl.
|Crossing The Fields at Tilburstow|
Once across the A22 you cross several fields until reaching the village of Tandridge. Here there was a very walker-friendly pub that also offered bed and breakfast in case you wanted to make this into a weekend expedition with the next section.
This is a fairly easy day, which can be undertaken in about four to five hours depending on your pace. The pub at Tandridge would make for a good overnight stop if you wanted to continue on to Sevenoaks and make a weekend of it.
