68 students trekked 30 miles over the North Downs from Dorking to… Dorking!  The groups went via the North Downs (chalk) towards Guildford, camping at the stunning Chantries camp.  They then crossed the clay vale to the extensive Heaths and woods of the Greensand Hills (Greensand) to Peaslake and Holmbury St Mary to a farm camp site under the south slope.  The final day saw them trekking over the summit of Leith Hill back towards Dorking, finishing at North Holmwood.  Weather was good, warm and dry and most groups avoided the worst downpours on the last day, finishing around midday.  Well done all, good hiking with most groups improving their navigation.
