A 4 mile circular walk through the village of Pyrford, near Woking in Surrey. The walk has plenty of interest passing the ruins of Newark Priory and Pyrford's Norman church before heading across peaceful farmland to Pyrford Lock and returning alongside the picturesque Wey Navigation.
The walk is generally flat with just one very short but fairly steep climb to the church. There are two stiles (both in open fencing making them easy for dogs to pass under) and several gates including one very tight kissing gate. There is one section of road walking along a narrow pavement at the beginning. The walk crosses a golf course so take care here to avoid the balls flying down the fairways! The paths are mostly mud towpaths and field paths all of which may be muddy after wet weather. The towpaths are quite narrow so take care with children. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.
Free parking is available in the small car park (with a height restriction barrier) immediately south of the traffic lights over Newark Lock on the B367 (Newark Lane), south of Pyrford Village. Approximate postcode GU23 6DP.
