After a good lunch in the restaurant at Denbies on Sunday 12th April 2015, we headed westwards from the car park along Bradley Lane through the vineyards and up towards Ashcombe Wood.
The walk is three miles with 455 feet (139 meters) of ascent and descent on good quality tracks. One section through the woods on the return is however, steep and uneven and boots are recommended.

This walk turns to the right however, leaving the North Downs Way and heads North East past "Dairy Cottages" and "The Forts".
Straight ahead is the track back to Denbies.
This is a lovely walk, which took us an hour and a half at a gentle pace with stops to admire the views, the plants and butterflies; Brimstones and Peacocks.
