North Downs Way Walk
FarnhamParks & Walks
- School age
The North Downs way is a long distance footpath through Surrey to the Kent Coast at Dover. It is 156 miles long, however as it starts in Farnham you can enjoy the start of the trail for a family walk.
The walk begins next to the A31 near Farnham Station. There is an information board here showing the route of the path and the path initially begins on the pavement next to the road but soon turns to the right and into some woodland and runs next to the river Wey for a while.
The path then goes under the railway line and briefly into open countryside before again going through some more woodland. The guide is clear that you need to take a right turning, but it's still easy to miss. As you come towards a wooden bridge over the river Wey in flat ground, take a right turn where there is a commemorative seat.
Depending on how far you want to walk, you can continue to views of the Hogs Back around the north edge of Puttenham Common before coming into the pretty village of Puttenham. For more information about the North Downs Way visit the website.
