A 1.5 mile circular walk from the Dabbling Duck cafe in Shere, Surrey. The Dabbling Duck is a great place to meet up for breakfast, morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea. The welcome is warm and the food is a treat. The walking route explores the beautiful village of Shere giving you an opportunity to appreciate what makes the village such a sought after residential location and such an attraction for tourists and visitors. Along the way you'll be able to enjoy the many historic cottages, the river and ford, the pretty shops and ancient church plus learn more about the history that has shaped the village.
The walk follows mainly well-made stone and tarmac paths and pavements. One short section by the ford can be a little softer underfoot but this can be excluded from the walk if necessary. There are a few gentle climbs and descents. The pavements can be quite narrow in places (so take care with children and dogs) and you will need to negotiate two kissing gates and a few single gates (the kissing gates can also be excluded if necessary). Allow 30 to 60 minutes.
Shere is located between Guildford and Dorking, just south of the A25. It is easiest to park in the free village car park. Turn off the A25 into Upper Street and follow this as it swings left – look out on the left for the small blue 'P' sign which leads you into the village car park. From the car park, you need to make your way to the Dabbling Duck cafe to begin your walk. Exit the car park back to the junction with Upper Street. Turn left along the pavement for just a few paces, and then cross over with care to turn right into Middle Street. You'll find the Dabbling Duck just a little way along on the right. Approximate post code GU5 9HF.
