Explore Surrey: Godstone Paths, Ponds and Churches

A 6.5km (4 mile) circular walk from the pretty village of Godstone in Surrey, taking you on a simple loop through the surrounding fields and lanes via old mills and the adjacent village of Tandridge. This walk is part of the Explore Surrey collection, published through a collaboration between iFootpath and Surrey County Council.

The walk has just a few gentle slopes throughout, with a couple of short steeper parts. Many of the bridleways and paths across fields and through woodland can get very muddy so good boots are a must (or wellingtons with grips in the winter). One of the fields you cross is likely to be holding (inquisitive!) horses. You will need to negotiate a few kissing gates, some steps plus two stiles (which have open fencing alongside for dogs to pass through). If you wish, you can easily avoid both stiles and the horses by re-tracing your steps along part of the outward leg to return to Godstone. You will need to cross the A22 at one point (the visibility is good but the road can be busy with fast moving traffic) and there are a couple of short sections on quiet country lanes, so take particular care at these points. Allow 2 hours.

Godstone is located at the junction of the A22 and A25, close to the M25 motorway. The walk starts and finishes at the parish car park, by the pond at Godstone Green, opposite the White Hart. The car park is free, but limited to three hours. There is also additional free parking available on the roadsides.
