This walk will go through some woodland and then open countryside past Lydling Farm home to the world-famous Rosemead Aberdeen Angus herd of cattle.  The current farmer, Angus Stovold, is passionate about maintaining the environment and has worked to develop hedgerows and sustainably manage the farm to encourage biodiversity.  We will then walk along a section of the Fox Way that will take us into Puttenham and the along the North Downs Way back through part of Puttenham Common.

 

Puttenham Common is a remnant of lowland heath and is an important nature reserve managed by Surrey Wildlife Trust.
