Shalford, Chinhurst Hill and The Wey Canal 12 mile plus Bank Holiday Hike

  • May 27, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

A hidden gem of a trail for Bank Holiday. We follow the Wey Canal for a short distance before hiking to the top of Chinhurtst Hill. The river Wey's importance lies in the fact it is the only outlet to the English Chanel in the whole country's waterway system. While the Chinhurst Hill is home to a 1930 Grade II listed stone tower and inspiring views. Are route moves on to the leafy woods of Blackheath before heading

toward one of St Martha's gentler hill paths. There will be 430m of total ascent over the route to give you a good workout. Along the way we stop for lunch at this group's favorite pub, The Drummond arms.  Great food at reasonable prices.

Caveat:Please be aware there is a element of risk when participating  in hiking and outdoor activities. As always there are a few heart pumping hills and our usual fast pace. Please come with a good level of fitness and properly equipped to minimize the risk to yourself and to avoid holding up the rest of the group.

TRANSPORT:
There is a small car park at the station and free on the street parking.

Trains:

Depart Waterloo 9:00 Arrive Shalford 9:53 change at Guildford (use loos at Guildford)

    A challenging but rewarding walk encompassing some stunning views of the Surrey Hills and North Downs made all the better by the sunny weather..
    Paying for the meal upfront was a good idea and could prove a model for similar meals in the future....
