Getting There

A circular walk from the pretty village of Thursley in Surrey. The walk starts at the centre of the village before heading out over Thursley Common Nature Reserve and then back though woodland and past equestrian paddocks to return to the village. The walk has just a few short and mostly gentle climbs and descents. There are a few kissing gates and two stiles, the first one has plenty of open fencing around suitable for dogs to pass through and the second is a stone stile which is around one foot high so should be easy enough for most dogs (and humans!). The walk follows heathland, woodland and farm paths all of which will be muddy after wet weather. There are a couple of very short sections of road walking. Approximate time 2 hours.

The walk starts from the free car park between the cricket pitch and recreation ground in Thursley. The car park is accessed from Dyehouse Road and has a 2m height restriction barrier. Approximate post code GU8 6QA.

Some sandy patches, but a good level ride

The track down past Hankley Common was a bit long and dull but Thursley Common was fabulous.

Sandy paths snake across the Common, then a glorious glen split by a delightful stream, and finally back to Thor’s Thursley.

Lovely varied terrain - specifically good at this time of year as heather out & looked gorgeous in sun with blue skies (well almost!). Not strenuous but quite sandy underfoot in places.

Very nice trail with some good variety. A bit hard going on the sandy tracks. Perfect for dog walking.

Another great walk, very sandy over the common so unsuitable for buggies!

Top walk, loved the first bit through yellow gorse, and also the bit to Smallbrook farm down the bluebell wood and over the stream was special.

The power lines on the Heath have been removed so ignore that direction!

First to Review

Great Walk the sign for the National Nature reserve is missing on Dye House Road next to the second entrance to Foldsdown House. Another way to get to this point is to leave the car park by the path next to the play area where the nature reserve sign is, continue until it divides ignore any footpaths that cross it take the right fork this will take you to the first way-point.
