pub walk

A circular pub walk near Wonersh in Surrey. The walk begins with an (optional) loop up and around Chinthurst Hill, with its beautiful folly tower, bluebell woods and outstanding views. Next, you are taken on a journey on part of the Downs Link including a stretch of a disused railway (with remnants of an old station) and with lovely views of the surrounding Surrey Hills. The route is deliberately designed to allow you to stop at The Grantley Arms in Wonersh during the return leg, a historic inn and the perfect setting for mid-walk refreshments. The bulk of the walk follows well-made paths with only gentle gradients throughout. Some of the woodland stretches can be muddy. You will be sharing the old rail line path with cyclists so take care with children and dogs. There are a couple of kissing gates on route and a couple of steps (but no stiles). You will not be sharing the paths with any farm livestock, as the route does not cross any farm fields. The optional climb onto Chinthurst Hill includes some steep gradients with several flights of steps and two kissing gates, but the views are worth the climb if you can manage it. According to the Surrey Wildlife Trust website, pigs (within electric fencing enclosures) are sometimes used to graze the top of Chinthurst Hill. Allow 2 hours.

a nice walk. it goes through the village so be prepared for a good track to be on public road.

Great views and not much road noise. Nice cut through a small village with interesting buildings and a great pub for lunch.

Excellent walk, was a beautiful day. Agree the suburban cut through wasn't great but this 5minute walk is nothing compared to the beauty of the other hour and half.

Lovely walk with great views. Good instructions. We did miss the path down Chinthurst Hill to Southfold Stables but knew the area well so could hook back into the instructions a little later. Grantley Arms highly recommended!

Lovely, varied walk. Great views from Chinthurst Hill and interesting trail on disused railway line.
