Walton Heath: horse ride and footpath
Walton Heath: horse ride and footpath
A horse ride and public footpath Banstead 96 cross over the access drive to Moor Edge and Moor Croft. The ride follows a separate alignment to the footpath, and runs parallel to public footpath Banstead 97: here, it crosses to the opposite side of footpath 96. Barriers discourage equestrian use of the footpath. The woodland (and the access drive) are part of Walton Heath common.
Walton Heath :: TQ2253

An extensive area of common land, 202 hectares, register unit CL355 of the manor of Walton on the Hill, now largely adopted as a prestigious golf course. Areas of scrub and grassland remain undeveloped, while the heather roughs, carefully maintained as such, are perhaps closest in resemblance to the traditional appearance of the heath. Part of the heath was taken for the M25, and significant exchange land, formally now part of the heath, exists south of the M25, and not part of the golf course. The heath is owned by the golf club, but the sole remaining registered right of common belongs to Reigate and Banstead Borough Council. Subject to rights of access on foot and on horseback under section 193 of the Law of Property Act 1925.
