Saturday Walk: Guildford Circular

15.5 miles / 25 km
(Shorter versions possible with later start from Shalford and early finish from Shalford or Chilworth)

A varied walk - the morning route heads out of Guildford along the River Wey Navigation, then follows the valley of the River Tillingbourne, across Albury Heath to lunch at Little London.
The afternoon route passes through Albury Park to Newlands Corner and up to St Martha-on-the-Hill, then heads back to Guildford via Chantry Wood.

Trains: 9:30 from London Waterloo, arrives at Guildford at 10:03.  To start at Shalford take the 10:00 from London Waterloo, arrives at 10:53 (change at Guildford).  It is also possible to start from Chilworth, but the train service is rather infrequent.

Lunch: William IV, Little London - this pub is recently under new ownership and getting very good reviews, phone ahead for a table (01483-202685).

Newlands Corner has a couple of places to get refreshments mid-afternoon.

I was the only one who was apparently interested in a longer walk today. Very enjoyable. Bluebells and daffodils on the route helped brighten up any overcast day.

Sorry Pete we must have missed you. 5 of us were on the 09.28 train from Waterloo. We waited till 10.15 for late comers but no one appeared so we set off. At the King William we gained another walker and 2 later decided to end walk early at Gomshall. 4 of us head off to the main walk via St Martha and the lovely Chantry wood and yes blue bells appearing. got to Guildford station and just miss the 16.17 train. Lovely long walk day good weather no rain and hardly any mud! Monica
