The Greensand Way long distance route
The Greensand Way walking route starts in Haslemere, Surrey and ends, 108 miles later, at Hamstreet in Kent near the coast south of Ashford.
In Surrey, it takes the walker along paths which, in many places, give unparalleled views to the south across the Weald as well as northwards to the North Downs.
Much of the land is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB); the stretch from Hindhead to Leith Hill has formed part of the Surrey Hills AONB since 1958, with the tower at Leith Hill being the highest point in the southeast of England.
There is a distinctive Greensand Way waymark sign in Surrey, which is a drawing of Leith Hill Tower. The whole route in Surrey is checked annually with the invaluable help of volunteers from the Surrey section of The Ramblers, as well as our own public access officers.
We have split the route in Surrey into ten sections of linear walks of between three and seven miles and provide downloadable pdfs of these below showing a map, directions and interesting features for each one, with information on public transport where available.
