A stroll over farmland and through woods to the south of Woking from Clandon Station to West Horsley. We will be joined by members of the London Blind Rambling Club, and you may be asked to help guide individuals so that their dogs can run freely. We will be asking for volunteers closer to the date so that we can be sure there are sufficient guides available on the day.
The route may vary from 6 to 8 miles, dependent on weather conditions and the numbers attending, and could be linear (from Clandon to Horsley stations) or circular (from Clandon station). Assistance dogs only please.
