Help connect Horley

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Horley’s Slow Ways.

Daisy C surveyed Reihor one

Walk this route

A fine route, very quiet, good surfaces and very little road walking. Couldn't always avoid mud and waterlogging but the only significant flooding I didn't reroute to avoid was the bridge over Salfords Stream, a little bank climbing, rose briars and slightly wet socks got me across. To avoid steps and crossing a narrow blind bend at St Mary's Church on Chart Lane, go a little further south to cross, then use a hidden path in front of the school opposite to join the alley....

Most of the route goes through fields, and many of them have cows. After a little while along more fields (without cows), the route has a very small section of road walking along Horley Road near the western end of Gatwick airport....

Unlike Dorhor 1, the section near Horley involves now very little road walking, with a stretch along the Mole and through some fields. The small sections where there was some road walking needed, it was either a short section, little traffic, or a good verge....

If you’re coming in by train then be aware that the start point is about a 20 minute walk from Dorking Station. After a short walk down some unpaved roads you slide into farmland and fields. There’s short village intermission and a slight section of main road the walk along before heading back into some more fields. The roar of the nearby A road becomes ever present as you pass over beautifully manicured playing fields....

There is one small section on Crossoak Lane where you walk in the road which has no footpath and is a national speed limit; this can be avoided by taking the marked footpath on the left on Lake Lane, about 200m before the junction with Crossoak Lane....

A fingerpost points to the path you need to take over the footbridge (step access) which takes you across the railway and to the end of another footpath which will deliver you, under the A23 spur which marks the border with West Sussex. Here is also access to the railway station, monorail and airport. The next section takes you over the railway again via another step only footbridge. In the process of altering this route I've made it more obvious that you should follow the cycleway and not the footpath which soon would have you walking by the road. The last 100m of this route includes the bus station and the railway station, which is on the line between London and the Coastway West, rather than the main London-Brighton line (Three Bridges which is on the L-B line is a short hop away)....

Walk this route

Just having passed Earlswood Railway Station the route enters a private road, at the other end of which is "Asylum Arch Road", pointing to a bit of local history. The footpath across the road then takes you on the most rural section of the walk accompanied by bluebells, green fields and views of the North Downs. It's a 40mph road but it has a pavement. Cycleway 21 doesn't follow this road, and it's possible there might be a better alternative using it, but that's for someone else to find out (or me, but not now)....
