We head off using the new Strawberry Vale track to Kingston and then avoid traffic by using Horton Country Park to get into Leatherhead. Through the Mole Gap we turn left UP to Norbury Park . Rewarded by a fine view and flower rich meadows.

Lunch at the capacious Bocketts Farm tea rooms then back via Oxshott and Claygate.

Just 4 of us turned up. We reached Leatherhead smoothly but one of us was having trouble with rough surfaces so we agreed to modify the route to go to Box Hill rather than Norbury Park. Despite a mixed forecast we had no rain and occasional sun and got back to Kingston soon after 3 despite a detour round a closed railway bridge.
