A circular walk from Haslemere rail station through the surrounding heathland, farmland, Devil's Punchbowl and Gibbet Hill. This walk is published through a collaboration with Surrey County Council. The walk has several climbs and descents throughout including a couple of fairly steep sections. You will need to negotiate some single gates, kissing gates and steps but there are no stiles on route. Some of the paths are rocky and uneven underfoot and can also get very muddy at times, so good boots are a must (or wellingtons with grips in the winter months). Hindhead Common has grazing livestock at times to help with conservation (including wild ponies and Highland Cattle) and the hay pastures at the National Trust Swan Barn Farm can also be holding conservation livestock (Belted Galloway cattle and Jacob sheep), so take particular care with dogs. There are public toilets available at the Devil's Punchbowl (waypoint 3) and lots of pubs, restaurants and cafes in Haslemere High Street (at the start and end of the walk), a pub and cafe at Devil's Punchbowl (waypoint 3) and The Wheatsheaf pub in Grayswood (just a short walk from the church at waypoint 6). Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer OL33 Haslemere and Petersfield. This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private and public land. Information is included, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.
