Thursday 13th June
Meeting point: Farnham central car park, GU9 7RD
From the middle of Farnham, this short but hilly walk takes us up through the tiny sculpture park at the university and past the castle, across the golf course then up to the top of Farnham park. We then head into the countryside and join St Swithun's Way briefly before descending through fields and woodland back to the town centre. We can stop for a drink at a pub at the end of the walk.
We will meet at 7pm in the central car park in Farnham, post code GU9 7RD (entrance on Victoria Road, free of charge from 6.30). It's about 5-10 minutes walk from Farnham station, so we'll wait for those coming by train (aim for one arriving around 6.45/6.50).
Please wear suitable shoes for walking as it's quite a hilly route.
Easy Walks are for anyone who does not have a mobility difficulty, a specific health problem or is seriously unfit. Suitable for pushchairs if they can be lifted over occasional obstructions. Comfortable shoes or trainers can be worn.
Leisurely Walks are for reasonably fit people with at least a little country walking experience. May include unsurfaced rural paths.
Moderate Walks are for people with country walking experience and a good level of fitness. May include some steep paths and open country, and may be at a brisk pace. Walking boots and warm waterproof clothing are highly recommended.
Strenuous Walks are for experienced country walkers with an above average fitness level. May include hills and rought country, and may be at a brisk pace. Walking boots and warm waterproof clothing are essential. People in doubt about their fitness are advised to contact the walk leader in advance.
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.
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.
