local history and a diversity of wildlife.

serving the main roads.
By car: Parking is available at Horton Country Park and Stew Ponds car park.

Points of interest:
•   Horton Country Park A rural landscape of fields, hedgerows, woods, and
    ponds, (look out for green woodpeckers, which are often seen in the park).
•   Epsom Common A local nature reserve, with large areas of woodland,
    diverse flora and two ponds – the Great Pond and Stew Pond (meaning fish
    pond), which supports a wide variety of wildlife.
•   Ashtead Common A national nature reserve, containing many oak pollards
    (some over 300 years old), and remnants of medieval pasture woodland.
•   Winey Hill A public open space with magnificent views of the North Downs
    to the south and across the Thames Valley and London to the north.
•   Nearby: Castle Hill The ‘Castle’ is a scheduled ancient monument,
    probably the remains of a moated farmstead dating from the 13th century.
    (This can be reached via Horton Country Park by following the Thames
    Down Link that goes all the way to the River Thames at Kingston).
•   Nearby: Sixty Acre Wood This private wood has features of ancient
    woodland that date back to at least 1600.

Typical time: Approx 2 hours.
Rating: The walk is largely flat with some hills. Suitable footwear should be

Train: Kingston Station. Berrylands Station.
Bus: 465.

Directions:
•   Start at the Hogsmill Bridge, near the junction of Chapel Mill Road and

    roundabout where you turn left into Lower Marsh Lane, and continue along
    to Berrylands Station.
•   At Berrylands Station go up Chiltern Drive and left down Surbiton Hill Park

    Tolworth Brook. Bear left through the meadows and follow the Hogsmill
    River to the A3.
•   Cross the A3 via the subway up the road to the right. Turn left out of the
    subway, cross the river and take a small gate to the right to follow the river
    through some more meadows.
•   Continue straight over a tarmac path, under a railway bridge. Follow the
    path around to the left up a hill. At the top turn right through a wooden gate
    and pass the church of St John the Baptist.
•   At Barrow Hill carry straight on down Royal Avenue. At Grafton Road turn
    right, go downhill and right down Cromwell Road to reach the Hogsmill Pub.
•   Cross over Old Malden Lane, cross over the river and immediately left along
    the path beside the river to the Kingston Road, which you cross to reach

Come for a stroll beside London’s rural Thames where the tranquil
river rolls past world famous visitor attractions and idyllic waterfronts.


The walking is easy, level and signed throughout as the Thames Path.
Each section is just right for a challenging stroll, where you can enjoy the
changing scenery of sailing clubs and marinas, locks and weirs, or parks
and promenades.

Transport:
Train: Hampton Court Station and Kingston Station.
Bus: Numerous routes serving Hampton Court and Kingston.

Kingston Bridge (2.9 miles. I hour 10 minutes).
•   Meet up with the Thames Path beside the river at Hampton Court Palace.
•   Set off beside its long mellow brick wall and glimpse formal gardens through
    its ornamental railings.
•   Pass Thames Ditton Island, where Barge Walk sweeps around Home Park.
•   Notice Thames Ditton on the south bank, with Victorian waterworks and
    a marina.
•   Just past the little island of Ravens Ait is the Italianate tower of St Raphael’s
    Church.
•   As you walk up towards Kingston Bridge enjoy the trees, swans, geese and
    houseboats.

The Thames Path on the south bank (right) Kingston Bridge to
Teddington Lock. (1.9 miles. 45 minutes)

    River’s Locks connecting the tidal and non tidal Thames).

Royal Heritage.


Points of interest:
1 The Coronation Stone, next to the Guildhall naming the seven Anglo Saxon
  Kings reputedly crowned in Kingston in the tenth century.
2 Clattern Bridge, the oldest bridge in Surrey still in use. ‘Clattern’ comes from
  the clattering sound of horses hooves.
3 Queen’s Promenade, made in Queen Victoria’s reign, who often came
  through Kingston on her way to Claremont House.
4 Charter Quay with a piazza, cafes and restaurants, a theatre and
  wetland area.
5 Kingston Bridge was replaced in 1828, and widened in 1914 and 2001.
  Kingston’s old wooden bridge was the only crossing above London Bridge
  until 1729.
6 Kingston’s ancient Market Place, dates from 1170. Royal Charters have let
  Kingston set up markets to sell goods for over 800 years.
7 The Market House, dating from 1840, was previously the Town Hall and now
  houses the Tourist Information Centre.
8 All Saints Church which includes the site of St Mary’s Saxon Chapel.
9 Cleaves Alms Houses, built in 1668 with money given by William Cleave for
  elderly residents of Kingston.
10 Lovekyn Chapel, built in 1309 and understood to be the only free standing
   chantry chapel in England.
11 Kingston Library and Museum, housing the Town of Kings Gallery, where
   you can find out more about Kingston’s Royal Heritage.
