Exploring Friday Street in the Surrey Hills


Friday Street is a tiny hamlet deep within the Surrey Hills close to Leith Hill. Buried in delightful woodland with numerous paths and public walkways, it once thrived with charcoal burners and iron works. Hammer ponds and natural springs speak of its previous history of which today there is little trace.

I am accompanied by Matthew Holdsworth as we explore this remarkable wooded landscape.

The Greensand Way is a long distance path of 108 miles (174 km) in southeast England, from Haslemere in Surrey to Hamstreet in Kent. It follows the Greensand Ridge along the Surrey Hills and Chart Hills.
