#1 - Pyrford and the Wey Navigation
Woking, Surrey, England
moderateYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray StarGray Star(75)
Length: 3.8 mi • Est. 1 h 31 m
A circular walk through the village of Pyrford, near Woking in Surrey. The walk has plenty of interest passing the ruins of Newark Priory and Pyrford's Norman church before heading across peaceful farmland to Pyrford Lock and returning alongside the picturesque Wey Navigation. The walk is generally flat with just one very short but fairly steep climb to the church. There are two stiles (both in open fencing making them easy for dogs to pass under) and several gates including a kissing gate. There is one section of road walking along a narrow pavement at the beginning. The walk crosses a golf course so take care here to avoid the balls flying down the fairways! The paths are mostly mud towpaths and field paths all of which may be muddy after wet weather. The towpaths are quite narrow so take care with children. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours. Show more

Length: 4.1 mi • Est. 1 h 56 m
A pleasant walk from Pirbright village passing through fields, woodland and heathland. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. The walk is mainly flat with just a couple of gentle slopes. Stout shoes/boots are recommended as the route can be muddy in places. You will need to negotiate several gates/kissing gates plus two low stiles (which most dogs should be able to pass under or hop over). A couple of the fields you cross are likely to be holding horses so take care with dogs. The route includes a few stretches along quiet lanes without pavements, so take care of traffic at these points. Allow 2 hours. If you are looking for refreshments, the White Hart pub is next to the green at the start point, and the Cricketers pub is at the other end of the green, towards the end of the walk. Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer 145 Guildford and Farnham. This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private land. Information is included for your interest, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code. Show more

Length: 4.1 mi • Est. 1 h 57 m
A circular walk from Horsell Common near Woking in Surrey. The walk takes in a large section of the common (including the sandpits made famous in H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds) before heading out through the recently formed McLaren Park (alongside McLaren's Formula One technology centre) and on to reach Fairoaks airport. The walk then returns on the bridleway which runs alongside the many streams which feed the River Bourne. The route follows a mixture of heath/woodland paths, bridleways and one section along a wide grass verge alongside Chertsey Road, all of which can get fairly muddy after wet weather. The walk is almost entirely flat and there are no stiles, just a couple of gates. There is a cafe (Hanger Cafe) open to the public within Fairoaks Airport complex should you want refreshments. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.Show more

moderateYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(41)
Length: 3.3 mi • Est. 1 h 39 m
A circular walk around Chobham Common, a beautiful nature reserve in Surrey. The walk follows the paths through the length of the common, giving you chance to enjoy views across the lowland heath and surrounding woodlands. A real favourite with dogs, with plenty of areas to run, paddle, play and explore. The walk follows heath paths which will be very muddy after heavy rain. There are no stiles or gates and the climbs and descents are very gradual and long. The final section of the walk follows a narrow path through thick gorse (shorts are not advised!) and over a narrow low sleeper bridge. At certain times of the year temporary electric fence/gates are installed to allow cattle to graze so take care with dogs within any of these enclosures. The common is fairly remote so there are no refreshment or toilet facilities anywhere on the route. Approximate time 1.5 hours. Show more
#5 - Millbourne and Horsell Common Circular Walk
Woking, Surrey, England
moderateYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray StarGray Star(28)
Length: 5.3 mi • Est. 2 h 9 m
The circular walk is an ideal morning ramble to build up an appetite for lunch. You'll enjoy a lovely variety of landscapes including the heathland paths across Horsell Common, the riverside paths along the Mill Bourne as well as horse paddocks, meadows and woodland. The route is generally flat. The paths are all unmade and can be fairly muddy (especially where the bridleways are churned by the horses) so good boots are a must. The paths are also narrow in part and can get a little overgrown in the summer so long trousers are recommended (unless you're immune to nettles!). There are several gates/kissing gates to negotiate as well as some footbridges and two stiles (both stiles have gaps alongside which should be suitable for most dogs). You will need to cross one paddock which is likely to be holding horses and Horsell Common is also grazed for conservation by cattle at some times so take care with dogs at these points. The route crosses a number of roads and there are a couple of short sections of road walking so take care of traffic at these points. Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours. Show more

Length: 5.5 mi • Est. 2 h 45 m
A circular walk starting from Brookwood Station in Surrey. The walk follows the towpath of the Basingstoke canal and then passes through the village of St John's near Woking, cuts across the railway and a golf course before returning to the towpath for the return stretch. The walk is relatively flat and provides relatively easy walking and navigation. The paths include long sections of the canal towpath (which can be narrow, muddy and overgrown in places) along with pavements, road edges and tarmac paths. There is just one stile (which is quite small and relatively open to allow most dogs to pass through alongside) and you will also need to cross a golf course so take here to avoid the balls flying down the fairways.
