Most of the walk is through lovely North Downs chalk farmland and woods, some ups and downs of course!...

Leave Banstead by a quiet path, cross dual carriageway at lights, and continue to Banstead station on a pleasant residential street and footpath through woods. From Priest Hill there is a long footpath direct to the Ewell bypass....

I walked Ewell to Banstead and had no problems as far as Banstead station, where there is a blind road crossing. Tbh from direction of Ewell this may not be obvious, there is a view of traffic coming round the corners; but for anyone coming from Banstead it would be very unsafe - you can’t see the cars and they can’t see you....

It's a short walk mostly along public roads with not a great deal of interest along the way apart from a wonderfully decorated post box and the modernist Bourne Hall which looks like a magnificent concrete flying saucer....

A really superb walk which I started from Redhill. The M25 is crossed by underpass and just beyond it is the steepest part of the walk to the top of the North Downs. Kingswood presents the opportunity to walk the pavement past the gated driveways of large detached houses....

Walk this route

A direct, safe and enjoyable route comprising of a muddy, wooded, offroad section over Banstead Common in Surrey then the pavements of Greater London into Sutton. Generally easy to follow but marred by some dodgy plotting at the Banstead end, not bad enough to fail it, but bad enough to have to guess what they had intended. The Sutton end has links to transport and pubs....
