Traverse the sandstone ridge from Haslemere in Surrey to Hamstreet in Kent, crossing Leigh Hill, the highest point in south East England, through ancient woods, fruit orchards, hop farms and pretty villages to cliffs above Romney Marsh that once formed the country's coastal edge. The footpath takes its name from the green coloured mineral that that can be found in the sandstone layers.

This trail covers the section of the footpath from Haslemere to Leith Hill east of Peaslake. For the next section from Leith Hill to the border with Kent please click here.
