50 Walks in Surrey

50 Walks in Surrey

by: David Foster and Michael Buttler
Surrey may be better known for its suburbia than its scenery, but the image is unjust. Over a quarter of the county's landscapes are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and along the downs and the greensand ridge you can gaze to horizons with hardly a building in sight. This is one of England's most wooded counties and has more village greens than any other shire. Six long distance routes, including two National Trails, weave their way around the county and you'll sample sections of them as you journey through the pages of this guide.

This well-established guide explores some of the best of Surrey's varied countryside. It includes 50 themed walks of between 2 and 10 miles, each with fascinating background reading. Together they provide a balanced appreciation of Surrey's character. There are clear, easy-to-follow route descriptions and full colour detailed sketch maps for every walk. Each walk chapter is prefaced by a practical information panel giving distance, estimated time, total ascent, level of difficulty, terrain and landscape, start location with grid reference, OS map sheet numbers and suitability for dogs. A following section provides interesting information on what to look out for during the walk. Details of places to eat and drink are provided, including guidance for dog owners on where to walk and dog-friendly establishments.
