TQ2057 : Footpath to Walton on the Hill, Langley Vale Road

taken 9 years ago, near to Ashtead, Surrey, Great Britain

Footpath to Walton on the Hill, Langley Vale Road
Footpath to Walton on the Hill, Langley Vale Road
Epsom & Ewell footpath 32 at its junction with the horse margin alongside Langley Vale Road. The rather old signpost reads 'Footpath to Walton on the Hill'. The horse margin itself is in the foreground, and was created in the 1990s, parallel to Langley Vale Road, to provide a safer route to and from the training gallops on Epsom and Walton Downs, for horses in training at the yards on Headley Road and in TQ1957 : Shepherds Walk (Stane Street). Somewhat controversially, the margin was recorded as a public bridleway (Epsom and Ewell bridleway 146/Leatherhead bridleway 599), meaning that it could be used by cyclists, leading to reports on conflict between cyclists heading down the margin at speed, and racehorses ascending it. Hence the sign in the right foreground, which reads 'Beware Cyclists Give Way to other Users Please Pass with Care', and the Public Bridleway guidepost.
