Leaving Guildford behind us we start by joining the towpath on the River Wey heading south, to join the North Downs Way heading west passing though the warren's and around the art gallery. We turn north up and over the Hog's Back and into the first village of the day Wood Street where we will be stopping for a packed lunch.

After we continue north over farmland and around the bottom of Round Hill and over Littlefield Common before we reach the second village of the day and time to stop for a drink in the pub at Worplesdon. We turn due east across Whitmoor Common and onto Stringer's Common. We head south down Stoke Hill and re-joining the River Wey at Stoke Lock back into Guildford stopping at Dapdune Wharf for a cup of afternoon tea.

About our walks

Non-members are welcome to join us for 3 "trial" walks before deciding to join us. You don't need to book in advance - just turn up on the day.

All our walks are graded to give you an idea of what each one will be like. If you're unsure of your fitness level, try a short, easy walk first. It's better to find a walk too easy than to make yourself miserable and exhausted.

Please remember

  • Bring appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather conditions.
  • Bring something to drink, even if the walk has a pub stop. On most full day walks you'll need to bring a picnic lunch. The walk details will show this.
  • If you wish to bring your dog on a walk, you must ask the walk leader in advance as some walks are not suitable for dogs.
  • Please arrive early so that the walk can start on time. We'll wait up to 10 minutes if you let us know you've been delayed en-route.

All our walks are led by SYW members. Please follow their instructions, don't walk ahead of them, and let them know if you decide to leave the walk before the end.
