Join our President and Vice President, Chris Howard and Ken Bare, as part of Heritage Open Day weekend to explore some unusual historic buildings hidden in the historic village of Shalford, just outside Guildford.

Thanks to Shalford Parish Council, we have been granted special access to their unusual Victorian Gothic Chapel of Rest.

We will also explore the story behind the National Trust mill and take a peek at historic St Mary’s Church.

This is a relatively flat, easy 2 hour walk of approximately 5 miles (8km) along the Wey canal with no stiles to the historic village of Shalford.

Good walking shoes are recommended and wearing long trousers at this time of year as there may be nettles and brambles.  Please bring rain coats if appropriate, wear sunscreen and bring plently of water if it’s hot.
