This is a pleasant circular route from the car park, off Shores Road, through woodland and heathland to the sandpits at the centre of Horsell Common. The sandpits are the landing place of the Martians in H G Wells' "War of the Worlds". The path is wide and generally level with no steep gradients, suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.


Assuming a constant pace and no stops, typically it will take 23 minutes to walk the distance and along the way 107 calories will be burnt.
