Waterside Walks in Surrey

Waterside Walks in Surrey

by: David Weller
Walking by the water always adds interest, as from birds and wildlife to boats and anglers, there is always something to look at. Surrey is blessed with many wonderful waterways to explore. The 20 circular routes in this book take the walker along their banks and through some of the most beautiful scenery in Surrey.

There are walks by the mighty River Thames at Runnymede, Shepperton Lock and Hampton Court; and tree-lined strolls by the rivers Wey, Mole, Eden and Arun. In addition, there are picturesque routes along the towpaths of the Basingstoke Canal, Godalming Navigation and the River Wey Navigation.

Each walk is carefully described and also includes other information on how to get to the start, where to park, and recommended pubs and cafes. For greater clarity, the route descriptions are divided into numbered paragraphs which correspond with the numbers on the accompanying sketch maps. There is also a separate section about places of interest to visit nearby such as the RHS Wisley Gardens, Polesden Lacey, Shalford Mill, and the Countryways Experience.
