This lovely walk has historical locations, charming villages, divine birch and pine forests and a lovely pub stop en-route. The walk will head towards the ancient Waverley Abbey ruins for a scenic lunch stop and from there progress to the lovely Barley Mow pub in Tilford with a huge beer garden and village green and if we are lucky we might see a game of cricket in action before working our way back to Puttenham Common. Please note if coming by car the meeting point is the Puttenham Tarn Car Park.  There are two other car parks close by so please be careful not to end up there!

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.
