A circular pub walk from the Crown and Cushion in Minley near Blackwater, Surrey. The Crown and Cushion is an historic gem, steeped in history and even includes a medieval-style banqueting hall. The walking route explores the adjacent Hawley Common, taking in miles of the pretty woodland tracks with a chance to see the wildlife within the forest and the wildfowl on Hawley Lake. The shorter version of the walk is almost entirely flat, the longer loop having a few long but very gentle gradients. There are no stiles or gates on either route, just a few gaps alongside vehicle barriers to negotiate. The paths are a mixture of tarmac/stone firm tracks and softer woodland paths, the latter of which are uneven and can get very muddy after rain and in winter. One section of the route follows the tarmac access lane for Hawley Lake so take care of any traffic for this stretch. Hawley Common is part of the Minley MOD Training Area. This walk follows the public rights of way which are always open to the public, but make sure you pay attention to any safety notices, don't allow children or dogs to stray too far and be prepared for sudden noises! Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours (or 1.5 hours for the shorter version).

Nice and easy. Great for a run.

We really enjoyed this walk, we ummmmed and arrrrrred over wellies but thankfully we didn't wear them. Lovely wide footpaths and only one small very muddy but dodgeable path. There is 1 bit of road walking but on military ground so very few cars. It's a very bizarre area from dense green vegetation to baron land and water loved it

Did this walk this morning with my daughter. We found it a nice, easy walk.
