Surrey Year Round Walks

Surrey Year Round Walks

by: David Weller
On a fine day, no matter what the season, there is nothing quite like a walk in the country followed by a hearty meal in a good local pub or café. The twenty circular walks in this volume vary in length from 3 to 7 miles and are enjoyable all year round. The author has divided the routes into seasons to show each at its very best; whether it be woodland cloaked in the warm golden colours of autumn; the crisp, clear views of a winter landscape; a fragrant carpet of bluebells nodding in a gentle spring breeze; or the lush tapestry of wildflowers in a summer meadow.

Each of the 20 walks in this full colour guide is described in detail, with information on points of interest that are likely to be seen along the way. In addition there are details on where to park and where to stop for refreshments. Each route has its own accompanying sketch map which is numbered to correspond with the numbered paragraphs in the text.

There are walks through the picturesque village of Chiddingfold and over the Downs; through the magnificent grounds of Merrist Wood; across Ship Hill and Chobham Common with its heathland pools; and Lingfield Common with its wonderful pastoral views. There is also the church atop St Martha's Hill at Newlands Corner; a charming walk around Great and Little Bookham Commons with their woods and quiet pools; Colley Hill with its stunning views; and a delightful circuit on top of the North Downs and through Marden Park Woods
