The LOOP - Walk 3
Hamsey Green to Ewell
Today’s walk was another part of the LOOP. Section 5 took in four commons - Riddlesdown, Kenley Common, Coulsdon Common and Farthing Downs, and Happy Valley which is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). You also pass through Devilsden Wood which is classified as an ancient woodland.
Section 6 linked Section 5 to Section 7 - not much to see in this section!
Section 7 is the shortest and least green part of the LOOP, however you do walk through Nonsuch Park which is the last surviving part of Henry VIII's Little Park of Nonsuch, a deer hunting park which surrounded the former Nonsuch Palace.
Distance: around 15 miles (including walks to the stations)
