pub walk

A circular pub walk from The Bluebell in the Surrey village of Dockenfield, exploring the local village paths, woodlands and open fields along the way. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. The walk has several steady climbs and descents throughout. The paths through the woodlands can get very muddy, slippery or waterlogged after wet weather, so good boots are required (or wellies with grips in the winter). Some of the village paths are fairly narrow and so can be prone to becoming a little overgrown at times. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates plus 7 stiles (all of which have either built-in dog gates or fence gaps alongside, that should be suitable for most dogs). You will cross several grass pastures along the way where you are likely to come across sheep (or other livestock) so take care with dogs. There are a couple of short sections of road walking that require care. Allow 1.5 hours. The walk is designed to start and finish at The Bluebell pub, where you can get refreshments after your walk. Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer 145 Guildford and Farnham. This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private and public land. Information is included for your interest, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.

Enjoyed this walk during the summer heatwave! No mud at all obviously, and managed to stay in the shade for the majority of the walk. Lovely. Thank you for posting this walk � August 2018
