Banstead Countryside Walk

I went on a circular walk today around Banstead Woods and Chipstead Downs. It was beautiful! Autumn, in my opinion is def the best season for hiking. For any of you living in or around London, I'd really recommend a visit. Chipstead Station is only 30 minutes from London Bridge and in Travelcard Zone 6.

This last year, I've discovered some really beautiful chalk grassland sites bordering London including Quarry Hangers, Happy Valley, Chapel Bank and Saltbox Hill. Many of these sites are accessible via public transport and really worth checking out especially if you're in interested in wildlife...Here are a few photos I took along the way.....
