Discover the links between Tolworth - Malden Manor and Berrylands whilst walking alongside the Hogsmill river on this 3-mile walk. You can break off the walk halfway for a shorter version (2 miles) and once finished you can return to the start in a few minutes on the bus.
Tolworth roundabout has become a destination
in itself. Thanks to The Community Brain’s project SHEDx,
and a wider wayfinding project, it is now home to two wildlife murals (painted by
local artist WeAreSkyHigh) and 29 enamelled steel birds (hand painted by Himali Patil). Both artworks showcase the native wildlife of Tolworth Court Farm Fields, Kingston’s largest Nature Reserve. Perhaps you will spot some on your walk today...

THE HOGSMILL NATURE TRAIL
The trail takes you to the banks of the Hogsmill river, a rare chalk stream. Here fish attract some spectacular birds, such as kingfishers and herons, and beautifully - coloured damselflies and dragonflies can be seen in the summer.
It passes through woodland with some magnificent trees, including ancient oaks that are home to bats and woodpeckers.
Much of the trail is flanked by hedgerows with large patches of brambles, blackthorn and hawthorn that are covered in blossom in the spring and brightly-coloured berries in the autumn.
