A circular walk from Friday Street, near Dorking in Surrey, taking in the Wotton Estate with great views plus rivers, hammer ponds, mills, farms and churches to enjoy along the way. This walk is published through a collaboration with Surrey County Council. The walk has gentle climbs and descents throughout. Many of the bridleways and paths can get very muddy and slippery so good boots are a must (or wellingtons with grips in the winter).Whilst most of the paths are enclosed, you will need to cross a couple of pastures that may be holding livestock at some times of year (including cattle) so take particular care with dogs. There are several kissing gates plus four stiles (which have surrounds with gaps for medium dogs to fit through but larger dogs would need a lift over). There are a couple of road crossings of the A25 plus some short stretches of walking on a quiet country lanes, so take care of traffic at these points. There are several options for refreshments on the walk, with many pubs on the route. The Stephen Langton Inn is near the Friday Street car park at the start of the walk, the Wotton Hatch is on the A25 between Waypoints 2 and 3 and the Abinger Hatch is opposite the church at Waypoint 7. Ordinance Survey Map: Explorer 146 Dorking, Box Hill and Reigate. 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.

Lovely walk with some beautiful views, landscapes, pretty houses and 3 great pubs! 1 reasonable climb but really not too strenuous. You could pretend it is to justify that pub lunch!

Loved this walk with my husband and dog. Fantastic directions -you couldn’t go wrong. Lovely countryside and views. Pubs along the way for refreshments - we stopped at The Abinger Hatch which was very welcoming and very dog friendly. Took about 2.5hrs to complete the walk.

Lovely walk today (12/02/2017). A little muddy underfoot, but not as wet as we thought it might be. Very clear directions, and the GPS map is an added bonus �
