Description of walk: Meeting at South Lane car park we walk down the old railway line before heading across Ash Green Meadows towards the outskirts of Tongham before we take a footpath through fields to the back of the Hogs Back hotel. we then head along the A31 before crossing to Seale. We follow the road until we hit the North Downs Way.

We follow the North Downs Way all the way to Puttenham before heading across Puttenham Heath. this is the turning point where we head up back towards the A31 and towrds Wanbourgh. We then carry on till we end up at Christmas Pie where we join the Christmas Pie trail back through Ash Green Meadows and back to the car park.

As this is a day walk make sure that you bring lunch and have suitable clothing for the conditions eg jacket if cold and sun hat and suncream if warm.

There is an option to stop at the Good Intent at Puttenham for a drink only - but that can be decided on the day.
