Chapel Farm Barn & Postbox, Chapel Lane, West Humble

The Old Chapel ruin, now maintained by the National Trust.

At 4.5 miles is the entrance to The Denbies Estate - the largest vinyard in the UK.  The visitor's centre, off the A24, is well worth a visit.

But which way now.

 

Along the North Downs Way.

The path to the finish of the stage.

Just to the right of where the above photo was taken is an old concrete relic left over from the Canadian Army during World War II.

Approaching the finish along the North Downs Way.

 To finish at the National Trust carpark and picnic site at West Hanger.
