Help connect Gomshall

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Gomshall’s Slow Ways.

Berkshire Walker pledged to walk Guigom one

Walk this route

A little care needed crossing the A25, and then back into a pleasant woodland stroll until the Alpine descent to Gomshall (or Silent Pool if you duck out a little early). The walk up to St Martha’s is moderate but the reward of the views to the south is worth it....

Also I recommend to take certain amount of water as you won’t find any store or etc to have water throughout the walk. This route doesn’t show in google maps I would recommend to use os maps or slow ways maps....

I got a little confused after getting to Gomshall, as the public footpath (photo #12) doesn't start where the map shows, but instead at the south east end of the public car park just north of where the map shows it to be....

There were often great view of the North Downs (photo #1, #5, #7). Getting into Guildford is along the Mile Path which is a fairly long ascent (photo #10, #11), but again, has great view from the top (photo #12)....

Walk this route

From the station it is a short walk down the hill to walk along a busy-ish Dorking Road for a very short stretch. You come out of the copses (photo #5) along some houses to walk a short stretch again along the A25/Coast Hill (photo #6), before heading upwards towards Westcott Heath (photo #7). The route as drawn brings you down towards Coldharbour Lane and Falkland Road, but it's better to follow the Greensand Way along Nower Road and "The Struggle", as it avoids a busy (but short) section of road walking (photo #13)....

(If it is any help, when you get to a post with a choice of Green Dene or Shere Lane car parks you head in the Green Dene direction.). After you cross the Green Dene road some of the path is quite steep and I would imagine hard walking in wet weather....

This part is quite a large ascent up Pewley hill but otherwise it's a fair easy walk, the path near Albury can get very narrow and overgrown....

When I did this (March 2022), it was not long after the UK had a string of storms that felled a number of trees, so there were a few trees that blocked the path, but mostly could be walked around....

You climb a bit to Guildford, but you are rewarded with a fantastic view of the Surrey Hills before the descent into Guildford central, quite long and steep....

Walk this route

The detail of the route plotting could be improved, there are decision/ junction points at which the route is unclear (for example, the route around the church at the very end). Most of the route is on footpaths, the parts on road are on quiet roads and so quite suitable for walking with care. There are multiple stiles and uneven terrain so it may not be suitable for everyone....

This is a very good and pretty well direct route between Gomshall and Dorking, avoiding the hills of the North Downs....

This is an attractive route on major paths, with excellent views over Surrey and West Sussex. from St Martha’s Hill and Newlands Corner. Surfaces should be fine for walkers when dry, though the parts on the North Downs can become muddy in winter and very wet periods...
