A 10km (6 mile) circular walk exploring the canal towpath, riverside path, woodland, heath and small settlements around Frimley in Surrey. This walk is part of the Explore Surrey collection, published through a collaboration between iFootpath and Surrey County Council.
The walk is almost entirely flat with just a couple of gentle slopes. There are no stiles or kissing gates on route, but you will need to negotiate a few flights of steps and two simple gates. The majority of the paths and tracks are surfaced, but some of the stretches through woodland and heath can get very muddy after wet weather. There is no livestock on route and the woodland and heath sections are very popular with dog walkers. You will need to cross the railway at an unsignalled crossing so take particular care at this point. Approximate time 3 hours.
There are public toilets in Frimley Lodge Park (at the start of the walk) and also on Sturt Road at Frimley Green (towards the end). There are many options for refreshments on the way round. There is a cafe in Frimley Lodge Park, a range of restaurants and takeaways on Frimley High Street about half way round (including Ye Old White Hart pub) and a range of shops and takeaways at Frimley Green towards the end (including the Rose and Thistle pub). Ordnance Survey Map: Explorer 145 Guildford and Farnham. This walk follows public footpaths and bridleways which cross private and public land. Information is included for your interest, but please respect people's privacy, keep dogs under control and remember the Countryside Code.
If you are coming by car, the walk starts and finishes from the large free car park in Frimley Lodge Park, accessed from Sturt Road (just south of St Andrew's Church) between Mytchett and Frimley Green. The car park gates close around dusk. Approximate post code GU16 6HY. If you are coming by train, the walk can be started at Frimley rail station.
