Walking Matters

Godalming & Haslemere Ramblers

Shere circular

The leader feared there would be much mud on this morning’s five mile walk. There was heavy rain yesterday and the ground was already saturated. However, we were pleasantly surprised. The area is sandy so drainage is good. There was mud but none that went above the soles of our boots. The few who wore gaiters found them to be unnecessary.

There were 21 on the walk. We set off from the car park in Shere, headed south on the Fox Way and branched off on a byway to Ponds Farm where we turned west and rejoined the FW to Broomfields. Here we turned right on a footpath that took us to Blackheath Lane towards the railway line. Just before the railway line we turned right on a footpath, passed a house reputed to be haunted (no ghosts to be seen) and continued on a path marked on the map with green circles. This took us to Albury Heath sports ground. We crossed this, paused to look at the plaque marking the spot where Field Marshall Montgomery addressed Canadian troops before D Day, crossed Park Road, joined the Shere Millennium Trail and followed this back to Shere.
