'This walk shows how easily the hustle and bustle of the town centre can be left behind. A few minutes walking are all that is required to reach the beautiful and tranquil riverside environment of the River Wey Valley. Allow 30 mins to an hour depending on walking speed. Parts of the route, especially the towpath, may be uneven in places and muddy in winter.'

Overview

' A unique and beautiful world of heath and forest in the heart of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty ...  More than 90 years ago, Reggie Bray, Lord of the Manor of Shere, granted the public a "right to roam" with "open access for air and exercise" on the Hurtwood – one of the first estates in England to do so. This set a pioneering example of a landowner welcoming the public on to his land and finding a way of working with the public that would benefit both the land and the people.'

However, an exciting archaeological discovery in 1996 changed all that, when the remains of what’s believed to have been a 12th century synagogue were unearthed in the town.'
