Explore River Wey in Guildford – free, guided walk

5th May 2019, 11:00 - 13:00

Join the Vice President of Surrey Hills Society, Chris Howard on this 4 ½ mile (7km) circular walk from Guildford Spectrum Leisure Centre through an attractive nature reserve on the outskirts of Stoke Park. This walk is fairly flat but may be a bit muddy if we have had a lot of rain, so do wear appropriate footwear.

This is a pretty corner of the Guildford that most people don’t seem to know about. The walk will take us through the remains of an ancient wood, an impressive site of a WW2 Tank Trap and along the Wey canal.

The route includes a visit to the National Trust Dapdune Wharf café and an exploration of Guildford’s largest park, Stoke Park. The Nature reserve and park are owned and managed by Guildford Borough Council.

This is a flat walking route, with no stile, which follows the River Wey and canal as it makes its way from Guildford towards Weybridge.

Appropriate footwear and weatherproof clothing essential. Well behaved dogs are welcome on the walk. Children under 18 years must be supervised.

Meet us at Guildford Spectrum Leisure Centre, Park Way, Guildford GU1 1UP at 10.30am for 11.00 am prompt start and an approx. finish around 1pm. There is four hours free parking at the Spectrum car park. Alternatively the nearest railway station is London Road, Guildford.  Also buses no. 100 and 101 stop by the complex.
