The circular walk is an ideal morning ramble to build up an appetite for lunch. You'll enjoy a lovely variety of landscapes including the heathland paths across Horsell Common, the riverside paths along the Mill Bourne as well as horse paddocks, meadows and woodland. The route is generally flat. The paths are all unmade and can be fairly muddy (especially where the bridleways are churned by the horses) so good boots are a must. The paths are also narrow in part and can get a little overgrown in the summer so long trousers are recommended (unless you're immune to nettles!). There are several gates/kissing gates to negotiate as well as some footbridges and two stiles (both stiles have gaps alongside which should be suitable for most dogs). You will need to cross one paddock which is likely to be holding horses and Horsell Common is also grazed for conservation by cattle at some times so take care with dogs at these points. The route crosses a number of roads and there are a couple of short sections of road walking so take care of traffic at these points. Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours.

Nice walk but be sure to wear trousers as some of the route is overgrown with lots of stinging nettles!!
