Wharf Road is off Woodbridge Road, along the southern side of the cricket ground. Go to the end of Wharf Road, through the National Trust gate on the right (if the gate is locked when you get there someone will be along soon to open it), along a roadway over speed bumps to the car park on the left. We meet in the tea-room there. All meetings start at 8:00 pm.

HIBERNATION SITE CHECKS
The checks last all day with a pub lunch and comprise Westhumble chalk mine in the morning with Betchworth and Brockham limekilns in the afternoon, and finishing at Box Hill Fort. Godstone is a series of old mines that we usually do without a break.

We usually run a basic training evening in the spring for those new to bat detecting. Details will be posted here once arrangements have ben made.

The group usually undertakes a
number of bat surveys each year.
BAT BOX CHECKS
Surrey Bat Group leads a number of
bat walks each summer, often for organisations such as the National Trust. They
are usually held between June and September.
Bats are now moving into hibernation for the winter, so we have no more bat walks this year. The 2020 programme of walks will be published here in the spring, as soon as dates are finalised.
