The Loop Cross Surrey Hike
On Saturday 23rd September, The Loop’s intrepid Trustees – Jackie, Jenny, Louise, Matthew and Tania will symbolically hike across Surrey, along the Greensand Way.
The Team of Trustees will collectively hike across the breadth of county, from Haslemere to the Kentish border.
The Greensand Way follows the ridge of greensand rock across Surrey and Kent for a total of 108 miles. This sandstone rock, containing the green coloured mineral glauconite, which is also known as ‘green sand’, gives the route its distinctive name. The Greensand ridge runs broadly parallel to and south of the North Downs ridge. The Surrey stretch of the route starts in Haslemere, passes the Devil’s Punchbowl at Hindhead, traverses the main Surrey hills of Hascombe, Pitch, Holmbury and Leith Hills, before descending north to Dorking, Reigate and beyond into Kent just beyond Limpsfield. A total of 55 miles.
Our Trustees have volunteered to do this hike to both raise awareness of how The Loop supports care charities and voluntary organisations across Surrey and to raise funds for the various community initiatives that The Loop runs, and is looking to expand countywide.
