Guildford Castle, The North Downs, St Martha on the Hill SATURDAY, 11 SEPTEMBER 2021 FROM 09:00-19:00
This is a good walk at any time of year with some fine bluebell woods in early spring.
We will visit Guildford Castle from outside. Only a romantic ruined keep remains of Guildford Castle today. From the top of the keep, there is a fine view of the Wey river valley.
What looks like a trigonometry point on Pewley Down just outside Guildford.
St Martha on the Hill is perhaps one of the most romantically situated churches in the country, positioned atop a wooded hill.
We will walk by Shere, which is often cited as Surrey's prettiest village.

Planned arrival time back into London of 7:00pm (we have a group train ticket and you are committed for the day until then).
