Walking Group


The  “Perambulators”  is  the Furzedown Project’s  walking  group.

Our  aim  is  to  offer  interesting  and challenging  walks  of  5 -12  miles within  easy  travelling  of  SW16.

Each  walk  is  mapped  & scouted.  We usually  meet  at  the  Project  at  9.00 before  setting  off  for  the  day. We  welcome new walkers.

Our next planned walk

Monday 22nd July 2019 – A walk from Milford, Surrey to Witley, via Brook. Approx. 7½ miles. Led by Annie McCall (mobile 07894 223730)
Meet outside the Project at 09.00.

We will make our way to Clapham Junction and then catch the 1022 train to Milford arriving at 1105. To save queuing at Clapham Junction we recommend that you buy your ticket in advance. We are returning from Witley. (approx £8.80 with Freedom Pass and Senior Railcard). After 5½ miles we will stop for lunch at the Dog and Pheasant Pub in Brook. Good beer and food menu, or bring sandwiches. There are no coffee stops. It is possible to catch a bus to Witley Station from outside the pub.
After lunch we continue our walk from Brook to Witley (approx. 2 miles) with a steep climb near the start
The walk is undulating with a couple of short steep climbs and approximately 3 stiles.

We look forward to you joining us.
