A circular walk in the Surrey Hills, visiting a number of popular attractions including Silent Pool, a stretch of the North Downs Way, Newlands Corner and St Martha's Hill and offering superb views. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. The walk has several climbs and descents throughout, including a steep climb up to the top of the North Downs. Several of the paths can be muddy and some of the chalk slopes can be very slippery when wet so good boots are a must (or wellingtons with grips in the winter months). You will need to negotiate some steps, one kissing gate and two stiles (both of which have open fence surrounds for dogs to pass through). There is just one field, at the end, that may be holding livestock with the rest of the route following paths through heath and woodland. The route crosses two busy roads so take particular care at these points. Allow 3 hours. There are public toilets and refreshment available at Newlands Corner (waypoint 2). Albury Vineyard is located alongside the car park at the start and end of the walk and offers wine tasting on most Saturdays (check the vineyard website for details). 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.

Would definitely recommend this walk to anybody with a dog! Be prepared for the super steep hill at the start of the walk but after that it is very enjoyable. Lovely walk which takes you all through countryside and past St Marthas Church which overlooks Chilworth and Albury.

Did the walk today, first real beautiful day of spring. We normally prefer walks to have a few less people around, but the fact that it can be a busy walk, don't let that put you off as it was fabulous! Plus we bought a bottle of fab quality English sparkling wine At the end!
