Extra Walk 329 – Dormans to Lingfield
Length: 17 km (10.6 miles), with optional extensions (†‡). Toughness: 3/10
09:51 East Grinstead train from Victoria (Clapham Jct 09:58, East Croydon 10:09), arriving Dormans at 10:46. Buy a return to Dormans.
† Or take the train half an hour earlier, get off at Lingfield, and see if you can do the walk's 3¼ km ‘preamble’ to Dormans in 36 minutes to meet the next train.
Return trains from Lingfield are half-hourly at xx:19 & xx:49; or three minutes earlier from Dormans if you take the post-walk extension (‡).
This newish walk had its début six months ago in rather dismal conditions, so I hope the weather gods are kinder this time. The morning section is a circuit of Dormans Park to the south of Lingfield; a short gallop up the finishing straight of its Racecourse should get the pub-lunchers to The Star at around 12:30-12:45pm. The afternoon route is a circuit to the north of the village, where you might like to linger in a nice Community Orchard. The directions point out various ways of shortening the walk if you want to finish early.
‡ There's also a 4 km extension back to Dormans station if you want a longer walk.
You'll need to bring the directions from the Dormans to Lingfield walk page. T=swc.329
This is a list of previous times this walk has been done by the club (since Jan 2010). For more recent events (since April 2015), full details are shown.
