The Greensands Way starts in Haslemere, Surrey and ends, 108 miles later, at Hamstreet in Kent near the coast south of Ashford. The path follows the ridge of greensand rock – a layer of sandstone in each of which is found the green coloured mineral glauconite. The Greensand ridge runs broadly parallel to and south of the North Downs ridge.
Below are links to the segments we have walked:
1 – Haslemere to the Devil’s Punchbowl (6.5 miles)
2- Devil’s Punchbowl (6.5 miles)
We then decided to also do the spur that runs between Thursley and Farnham. This isn’t part of the official route, but it is marked on the OS maps and the waymarker signs as ‘Greensands Way’… and we can vouch that the path is sandy!
Spur 1 – Thursley & Hankley Commons (8.5 miles)
