The Downs Trail

23 - 03 - 2021

We are delighted to announce the opening of a new footpath from Saturday 27 March.

The new trail is approximately 1/2 mile long and runs just inside the perimeter of the estate. Starting in the woodland, it passes parts of the 13th and 14th holes of the Coronation Course, runs up to the reservoir and out onto the Epsom Downs and to Centenary Wood in Langley Vale. There is a gate at the end which will enable you to leave the estate and join a bridleway. From there you can walk for miles across the Downs and to Walton-on-the-Hill and Headley if you wish to.

The new trail is open from 7.00am to 10.00pm every day, except the day of the Club’s golf championship, Saturday 26 June 2021.

Dogs or bicycles are not permitted along the Trail and please take any litter away with you. Please also respect the privacy of our neighbours as you pass their gardens.
