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.
