Overview of The Greensand Way

The Greensand Way walking route starts in Haslemere, Surrey and ends, 108 miles / 174 km later, at Hamstreet in Kent near the coast south of Ashford. 

It runs broadly parallel to and south of the North Downs and follows the ridge of sandstone across Surrey and Kent taking its name from the green coloured mineral glauconite found in the rock. In Surrey, it takes the walker along paths which often give unparalleled views to the south across the Weald as well as northwards to the North Downs. Much of the land is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the tower at Leith Hill is the highest point in the southeast of England. Frequently, the route leads through quiet and almost remote areas between small villages.
