Slow Ways linking Reigate and Banstead, Dorking, Headley, Horley, Redhill

England / Surrey / Reigate

Reigate’s five Slow Ways are 70% checked

Drawn: 5/5

Help connect Reigate

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 Reigate’s Slow Ways.

The paths were easy to walk, with space left in the crop fields (photo #2). A level crossing (photo #4) brings you to a long section through some alleyways, before crossing a golf course (photo #5). A road walk (photo #8) brings you to Lower Kingswood, where you'll have to cross (with lights) the A217 (photo #10)....

From Headley the route starts with some ziggy-zaggy footpaths, and a few gates (photo #1), before I had to cross through a field with a (docile) horse. Soon, the route went down the slope (photo #3) and then up again in the direction of the M25, which you could hear a little. After Colley Hill, the walk went down over a slippery path (photo #11)....

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....

Walk this route

The northern half follows the (Reigate and Banstead) Millennium Trail which has good white and blue waymarks, simple to navigate. At the point where that trail route joins this route (south of Mugswell) it also joins BanRed 1 and BanRed 2 Slow Ways from Redhill. If you plan to eat at Banstead it's worth staying on the Millennium Trail instead of leaving at Holly Lane....

The route then continues towards Brockham (photo #5) where it crosses the River Mole on a bridle path. After going through a churchyard, the route continues along a footpath a little higher up from a "Road liable to flooding" (photo #8) before turning North on the quiet Sandy Lane. A slightly detoured around a very muddy field before crossing some fields and stiles to end up at the Park Pit lake, where the route then continued through Dungates Lane where loads of Golden Retrievers where watching my progress. From the Skimmington there is a muddy path (photo #11), first along Littleton Lane towards Reigate Park with its lake, before continuing towards Reigate along the busyish Park Lane....

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....

Distance shorter than Reiban One because road walk past Kingswood Station is omitted....

Good connection from Reigate to Redhill, avoiding most main roads. Not particularly exciting as walks go though....

The start and end points are easily reachable by public transport and are good town centres with plenty of facilities; there are also three intermediate points along the route where you can stop at a pub; there are also shops and public transport in Brockham and Betchworth. The route isn't accessible to wheels as it includes some steep woodland sections and many stiles....
