pub walk

A gently undulating circular walk starting from Puttenham Common, passing through farmland and woodland. The walk passes the Palladian mansion Puttenham Priory, and through the village of Puttenham along the foot of the Hog's Back ridge. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. The walk includes several climbs and descents throughout. The paths can get quite muddy so stout boots are recommended. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates, some steps and 9 stiles along the way (all the stiles have adjacent dog gates or gaps in the fencing alongside that should be suitable for most dogs to pass through). You may come across livestock in some of the fields, including at least one field which may hold cattle, so take care with dogs. Approximate time 1.5 hours. If you are looking for refreshments, the Good Intent pub in Puttenham village is about half way round the route. 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.

Lovely walk with a good variety of scenery. The Good Intent pub which is about half way through the walk serves the best chips we have ever had!
