Surrey Nature Walks

Surrey Nature Walks

by: David Weller
Surrey Nature Walks is an informative, ecologically friendly walking guide providing that little bit of extra information on the wildlife and flora you will see along each route. The 20 circular walks follow country lanes, open fields, towpaths and footpaths and vary in length between 2 and 6 miles. Some of the routes offer an alternative short walk for families with small children and all include fascinating snippets on the surrounding wildlife and flowers.

Each walk begins at or near a good local pub where refreshments may be obtained. There is also information on places of interest nearby such as Godstone Farm with a nature trail and open petting zoo; Birdworld and Underwater World near Farnham where you can find an impressive selection of exotic birds and fish; or for something completely different there is Brooklands Museum near Weybridge, the birthplace of British motor racing.

Each walk is carefully described and is accompanied by a sketch map of the route. Numbers are used, both against the walk instructions and on the map, to make path finding easier. There are also details on how to get to the start, where to park the car and local bus services.
