There was sunshine on this morning’s seven mile walk. Paths were muddy but manageable. Twenty-four arrived for the start at the Artington Park & Ride car park. We crossed the main road (A3100) and headed west past Mount Browne Police HQ on a slippery footpath along which we practised staying upright. At Stakescorner Road we turned right, walked uphill and joined the North Downs Way and continued west. After West Warren we turned right on a bridleway that took us to the top of Sunnydown. Views from here were good; there was’t a cloud in the sky.
We then headed east on the muddy track before branching left on a footpath that went through the hedge and emerged on the other side of the ridge. This gave us good views to the north. Guildford cathedral came into sight. We continued NE across a field, crossed the A31 and followed a muddy footpath to Dennisville. Here we continued on tarmac and left a trail of mud as we walked to the cathedral.
After our coffee break in the sun, we walked through the university campus, crossed the railway line by a footbridge, joined the River Wey Navigation near Daphne Wharf, turned right and headed south back to the car park along the towing path.
