Either east or westbound...
I'll be doing a road trip in my Zoe40 from Suffolk/Norfolk borders to Guildford, Surrey.

I plan to stop first at Gridserve Edison Way because it's MEGA and I really want to gawp at it all, and then another quick stop somewhere because I'm paranoid about motorway range/my heavy right foot (and also not least because when I arrive at my destination, Surrey has a pitiful selection of chargers...).

I was hoping for my second splash-and-dash to be Clacket Lane, but I know Ecotricity/EH/Gridserve have ripped out/replaced Type 2 chargers all over the place, ZapMap shows only one Type 2 but eastbound, with nothing at all westbound.

I was wondering if anyone had insider information on whether Type 2 will be catered for at Clacket, w/c Mon 9th August.

Thanking you muchly

Clacket Lane Eastbound was still the old Ecotricity charger when I stopped a week ago but it's only a matter of time before it gets ripped out. Westbound is already Gridserve without the AC but the trunking for the electrics is there.

J6 (Godstone) The Bell Inn, a BP Pulse unit at the pub.
J8 (Reigate) Wray Lane Car Park, an ABB/Swarco unit. Enjoy the cafe & the gorgeous views. Postcode RH2 0HX. Used to be a CYC at this location.
J9 (Leatherhead) gets you a few old BP Pulse units, Brewery Inn at Ashtead but has car parking charge, Woodlands Park Hotel free to park, and the Shy Horse at Malden Rushett which is free to park.
J10 (Wisley) just up the A3 toward London but watch your speed entering, Starbucks with a GeniePoint.

The Shell charger at Buckland tends to get ICEd but not for long so worth waiting.
Reigate Morrison's has been unreliable at times in the past but hopefully it's through the problems, great place to charge whilst browsing the wines.
I'm sorry we can't accomodate EVs in Dorking, but we're still trying to work out these new fangled fossil cars with which to replace our horses (all funds went to Ashtead & Leatherhead).

All good to know! I know and love Dorking very well - lived there 2007-2017, and is the reason I'm coming back, to catch up with old friends!
Exciting to see the area being dragged into the 21st century, with at least some new technology!
