Wanborough to Godalming

t=1.2

Length: 13km / 8m
Toughness: 3 / 10
Transport: Take the 10:15 from London Waterloo change at Guildford to arrive at Wanborough at 11:06. Return from Godalming to London at xx:39 and xx:53.

From the description:

This short but lovely walk crosses open fields, passing Wanborough Manor and its tiny church. It soon goes over the Hoggs Back (the North Downs ridge) to descend into remote woodland, passing Watts Gallery, tea room, and Chapel. The Chapel (free) is worth the slight detour. A little further is The Withies Inn, an excellent country pub. Later, after more woodland, the walk is along the River Wey, followed by tea, or a pint in the ancient town of Godalming.

N=14, 13 at the start, 1 joined at Watts Gallery. Rain stooped as soon as we arrived at the station, W=grey_and_overcast_ in_the_morning_ brighten_up_in_the_afternoon. We even saw blue sky for a few moments. A lovely walk in good company. Ten had lunch at the Withies Inn followed by tea at Cafe Mila. Most caught 4:39pm train back to London. Felt a quite early finish but it was nice to get back home early and look forward to the next Saturday rather than being late home and feeling knockered. BTW: The Watts Gallery Cafe has gone a bit upmarket (not price but quality). The amond and fruit scone was divine - so I am told.
