London Loop Walk 4 – Coney Hall to Whyteleafe

It’s been a while since my last London Loop Walk, so with reasonable weather forecast, today was the day to do the next section.
I used the bus to get to the start of the section at Coney Hall – this was much easier than the much longer train journey to Hayes.

The first bit was through Coney Hall Recreation Ground, a pleasant but unexceptional dog walking area:

Then a nice path past Wickham Church:

Across the busy A2022, then through playing fields into the woods at Spring Park and Threehalfpenny Wood:

Then it was a bit of trudge down a busy road until some more woodland at Addington Hill:

The path climbed up to the “summit”:

Then back down the other side, and across the tram tracks at Coombe Lane Station:

Heathfield House is a very pretty late 18th Century house and gardens, now used as a training centre:


Next was Bramley Bank, a Nature Reserve:

After walking through Forestdale, open country beckoned at Selsdon Wood:

Then the final leg to Hamsey Green:

This is the official end of the section, but it was easier for me to do a bit of Section 5 and get the train back home from Whyteleafe.

Whyteleafe Station

A total of 12 miles today.
