I'd suggest clicking the This Link and printing the full monty.
On the map page the walk option I've posted goes south then down the dotted line before turning east. Curving south and slightly east to Godstone for luncheon.
On the afternoon leg the walk turns north at Tandridge swinging east to follow the second dotted line into Oxted.

If you want to save a few pages then clicking 'Main Walk' generates that route, with the short cuts in §2 and §14 reducing the length by 2½ km. But do head west at the end of §2, not east...

Intend going and would like to lunch at the Bell with their excellent and reasonably priced menu-2 courses for £12.

"MAX" the dog

If the designated lunchtime pub allows dogs inside then our regular Wednesday canine walker, 'Max', will be taking his place under a table near me. This dog is extremely well-behaved and appears to be well-liked among walkers.

Any complaints about Max will be logged and duly IGNORED.

Thank you
Melanie
