The Deepdene Trail
Mole Valley District Council is leading the Deepdene Trail landscape and heritage project to relink and repair the landscape around the magnificent estate in Dorking, Surrey.
In 2015, a £1million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund was secured for the project to revive the landscape and key architectural features on the estate once owned by Thomas Hope, who lived in Deepdene House during the early 19th century, at what is now the site of the current Kuoni head offices.
They are working with The Mausolea & Monuments Trust, the Dorking Museum, Kuoni, Stonegate Homes, the Dorking Golf Club, Surrey Wildlife Trust, the Friends of Deepdene and Martin Higgins, owner of Betchworth Castle alongside many other national and local partners.
The Dorking Museum also provides fabulous trail walks and tours.
The Trail will remain a free public resource managed by Mole Valley District Council.
