Photos of Stage 19

Merstham Station  to  Box Hill & Westhumble Station  (11.4 miles)

 

After 0.2 miles we join the the North Downs Way past Merstham Cricket Club, across Reigate Hill Golf Club, then throu' the Royal Alexandra & Albert School at Gatton Park, and up on to Reigate Hill. At Buckland Heights we divert from the NDW to stay on top of the Downs escarpment passing a few very impressive properties and some great views. At Pebble Coombe we join an ancient trackway along Tye Lane to Headley Village. Then divert south through Headley Heath to rejoin the NDW to the Boxhill Information Centre. We follow "The Old Road" past Box Hill Fort and down to Burford Bridge, then under the A24 to finish at Box Hill & Westhumble Station
