Ramblers project revives Surrey path
Bookmark and Share
A long-distance path in Surrey and Kent that had fallen into disuse has been revived thanks partly to the work of Ramblers volunteers, which has included installing new signposts.

The organisation noted that the Greensand Way is back in good condition after a decade of neglect and disuse, enabling those heading out with their hiking boots to enjoy a trek of up to 108 miles.

Located between the North Downs and South Downs, the ups and downs of the route mean that anyone walking its full length will climb the equivalent of Snowdon and Ben Nevis put together.

Starting at Haslemere and crossing the county boundary to finish at Hamstreet, the route includes sights like the Devil's Punch Bowl in Hindhead and the Surrey Hills.

Ramblers chief executive Tom Franklin said: "I'm proud of our volunteers across the country who give up their free time to keep footpaths like this open for us all to enjoy."

Other charitable efforts to restore and improve footpaths have included work co-ordinated by Friends of the Lake District around Helvellyn and Ennerdale in the past month, which have included improving path drainage and wildlife conservation work.
