pub walk

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.

Good walk. Too much street walking in Horsell. Enjoyable once on common etc. Section 2-3 seems to have changed? A local advised us that some ponds had been made. The surplus earth had made raised paths. This was apparently because of the heavy flooding at the start of 2017.

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.
