Getting There

A circular pub walk from The Red Lion in Horsell, Surrey. The Red Lion is a smart community pub where you can enjoy squashy sofas and real fires in the winter or the lovely sunny garden in the summer. The walking route explores the surrounding areas of quiet woodland and heath that make up Horsell Common as well as the pretty riverside fields of Mimbridge Meadows. The walk is almost entirely flat, with just a couple of gentle gradients. The woodland and meadow paths can get very muddy so good boots are a must (or wellingtons in the winter months). There are no stiles on route but you will need to negotiate several kissing gates, steps and footbridges. Some of the paths are quite narrow and can get a little overgrown in the summer. The route has limited road walking, but there are a few road crossings that need particular care (including the A3046 Chobham Road). Given the large number of small paths within the woodlands, the map on Alltrails will be very helpful in navigating the route. Allow 2 hours.

Horsell village is located less than a mile north-west of Woking town centre. The walk starts and finishes at The Red Lion on the High Street which has its own large car park. Approximate post code GU21 4SS.

Walked in late December, the trail was muddy as per the notes and so Wellingtons were perfect but strong walking boots would also have sufficed. Very enjoyable easy route but definitely glad of trail app GPS at a couple of places to ensure we took the right path

Busy on a lockdown Sunday. Too many distractions and roads for the dog

It was pretty waterlogged when we went (Mar 20) meaning we had to find alternate routes around. But the walk is flat and fairly scenic once you get past the suburbs.

Would recommend following the map. Walked this on a hot sunny summer day, so no mud to report. The pub at the end is lovely!

I love this app - but this is not one of the better walks. Countless busy roads and even the common and meadows have a municipal feel to them. An unexceptional walk in an unexceptional area.
