A circular walk taking you through the historic village of Witley, with its beautiful surrounding rolling farmland and heathland, and with an opportunity to extend the route by exploring Mare Hill Common. This walk is published through a collaboration with the Surrey County Council. The walk has gentle slopes throughout plus a couple of steeper sections. The paths and bridleways through the woodland and commons can get very muddy so good boots are a must (or wellingtons with grips in the winter months). You will need to negotiate one stile (which has an adjacent dog gate) plus a number of kissing gates and steps on route. The paths are all enclosed from the farmland and so you will not need to walk through livestock. There are only a couple of very short sections on roads, and these are very quiet lanes, but you will need to cross the A283 twice, so please take care at these points. Approximate time 2.5 hours. There are toilets at Witley rail station, at the start and end of the walk. If you are looking for refreshments, you will find The White Hart pub in Witley village, just before you reach the church (waypoint 3). Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer OL33 Haslemere and Petersfield and 145 Guildford and Farnham. This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private and public land. Information is included for your interest, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.
