These woods are extensive and link Chipstead area with Tadworth. Plenty of different types of views and marked trails. Excellent for dog walkers.

A lovely walk through ancient woodland which leads to plenty of other walkways over the downs and into Chipstead Valley. Full of wildlife and great for butterflies and birds. The car park can get very busy at times. The Narnia sculptures are an added interest.
