Description

Modified version of Netcat One which improves the Caterham end. A quiet back lane replaces the busy B2030 Church Hill ascent/descent into/out of Caterham. Safe refuge crossing at the top of the hill. Otherwise as Netcat One.

Where the North Downs merges with London outskirts and green belt, this route is a mix of glorious chalk downland, with hills both steep and rolling, and pleasant residential developments. Apart from the B road at Caterham (which this route almost totally avoids) the big Surrey roads disappear into the background.

The main feature to be aware of is that some of the hills are very steep, but they are always short. Good ankle support and walking poles will assist in those parts. There are some steps, but the steepest part (approaching/leaving Netherne) is not stepped.

Netherne is an interesting village developed around an old asylum, but has restricted facilities - there is a village store at the meeting point but that is all. There is no public transport, so be prepared to walk on if you are coming from Caterham. There is a good bus service on the A23 at the bottom of the hill at Hooley, which you can reach following the Bannet Slow Way.

Caterham has good transport links and refreshments. Close to the meeting point at the bottom of the hill, the route passes a small museum of the North Downs, which may be open, and is worth a quick visit if you are interested in the history of this area

Surveys

We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Good suggestion to use back roads in Caterham but Church Hill is direct and pavement quite wide enough. Good range of supermarkets, toilets etc. in Caterham. Regular trains to East Croydon and bus 407 to Croydon and Sutton just around the corner in Croydon Road.
