historic site

A circular walk near Farnham in Surrey taking in the remains of Waverley Abbey (the first Cistercian Abbey in Britain) along with a visit to the picturesque village of Tilford. The walk is relatively flat, there are no stiles and just a couple of gates/kissing gates. There are a few sections of road walking, including several hundred metres without pavements so the walk probably isn't suitable for children. The woodland tracks will be very muddy after wet weather. Entry to the Abbey ruins is free, dogs are welcome and the site is open during daylight hours every day. Approximate time 2 hours.

Waverley Abbey is beautiful. But there is some road walking on this walk. The part down to Tilford is a bit to long, especially in summer with overgrown banks and now where to get out the way of traffic on that main road

Improvised this walk. Started at Tilford parking by the river opposite the green then picked up the walk from point 4 and walked to Waverley Abbey for a picnic and then back via Mother Ludlums cave, footpath on the left at the bottom of Camp Hill Lane. Then back the way we came which avoided most of the roads. Just about the right distance and interest points for our kids (5-10)
