pub walk

A circular pub walk from Gomshall Mill in Gomshall, Surrey. Gomshall Mill is a timber-framed mill dating back to Medieval times and has been lovingly converted to a wonderfully atmospheric pub. The walking route follows an old lane to the adjacent village of Shere before climbing high into the North Downs to explore Netley Park, an old estate now managed by the National Trust. There's plenty of wildlife to enjoy along the way plus spectacular views once you're up on the North Downs. The walk follows a mixture of pavements plus woodland tracks, the latter of which are very uneven and can get fairly muddy after rain/in winter so good waterproof boots are recommended. There is one fairly steep, long and strenuous climb into the North Downs plus an equivalent descent, but the paths are all reasonably wide and there are no gates or stiles to negotiate (just a handful of steps). Approximate time 1.5 hours.

Really lovely walk. Long uphill to start but not a problem to do. If you’re walking with dogs be aware there is quite a lot of road walking. And the muddy bits were still muddy despite it being a hot August day and not much rain recently. Only for a short stretch though. Lovely views.

Rather strenuous walk uphill from Shere. Nice walk overall, lots of facilities in Shere if required.
