Ranmore Road
Ranmore Road
Ranmore Road, leading from Dorking up to Ranmore Common. Footpath 68 Dorking, just to the left of the left-hand 40mph speed restriction sign, follows the former line of the road. The present line was originally established as one of the carriage drives to Denbies (House), at the top of the hill, following a much gentler gradient for horse-drawn carriages than the road. However, the first 300m or so was adopted in place of the old public road in the mid-nineteenth century the road now bears sharply right and uphill just before the present site of the lodge (where the carriage drive formerly continued straight on). The footpath now provides access (via a permissive National Trust linking path) to the carriage drive beyond the lodge (the lodge is in private hands, as is the final part of the carriage drive north of Ranmore Road).
