Devils Punchbowl

Walk Description

Tucked in the valley Haslemere offers many splendid walks, all with a bit of a climb. But boy are they worth it!

This walk to the stunning Devils Punch Bowl is no exception. The route weaves past the Gibbet viewpoint (with its grisly history) and Walter Bailey’s impressive Xylem sculptural bench. This explores charcoal, its historical relevance to the Greensand Way and how this material has supported local individuals and industries enabling the shaping of copper, bronze, glass and iron. It is also the perfect place to enjoy the enjoy and tranquility of this setting since the re-routing of the A3. 

With this area being under National Trust stewardship you can of course count on us  stopping at their delicious cafe, before we turn back towards home.
