    The first stage begins on a hilltop near a lonely church and passes through a picturesque-patchwork of countryside.It may seem odd that the Downs Link starts on top of St Martha’s Hill. However, the route was designed to link the North Downs Way with the South Downs Way, and this is where it meets its northern brother.From St Martha’s, the trail descends past Chilworth and rises gradually over Blackheath, an internationally-important habitat for wildlife, before heading over Wonersh Common.At Lower Chinthurst Farm, it is worth climbing up Chinthurst Hill, where you are rewarded with extensive views from the pretty folly.The hike continues along disused railway lines through pretty farmland and small woodlands, passing Bramley and Cranleigh.This stage finishes in the village of Rudgwick, which has a few options for accommodation and food and drink, as well as shops.
