About this walk
The Newlands Corner car park there is a snack bar selling hot food and drinks. A number of self-guided trails can be followed from here but the purple trail, is a nice long walk taking in a variety of sites and habitat types. The vineyard at silent pool sells ice creams in the summer which is a nice little break. The walk starts at the visitor center you go to the end of the car park and follow the purple signs along the top of the downs then drop down onto the North Downs Way and follow the path up to St Martha's Church from there back down following the trail to Silent Pool (which also has it's own car park) then up a steep hill to re-join the North Downs Way to take you back to the car park.

a year agoLovely walk. We followed the Purple walk recommended. Signs weren't amazing. Went to the end of the car park and walked quite a way before finding first small arrow. In several necessary places with several paths, signs were missing. Since the summer of 2018, the car park is no longer free. You only get 20 minutes free parking now. £5 for 4 + hours now, which we paid as we were doing the 3 hour walk and you're never sure if you might stop etc. We had partly chosen this walk because it said free parking on this site. The walk itself was beautiful and the 3 dogs loved it. It is a steep long climb at the end of the Purple walk, from the Silent Pool back up to the car park.
