The Honour of working with Surrey Barons

Just a stone's throw from London, in England's south east corner, Surrey offers a great diversity of walking landscape as well as pubs that cater for all tastes.  It really is a match made in heaven.

 

Why not spend a day with the family exploring the treasures that Surrey’s countryside has to offer.  Historic villages nestle perfectly alongside vibrant towns, surrounded at every turn by the stunning Surrey countryside.  See, hear and breathe the world of Surrey, the most wooded county in Britain. The Star

Whether you're a serious walker, a casual rambler or an occasional stroller, walking is the best way to appreciate the stunning Surrey countryside. You'll discover that Surrey offers an extensive network of footpaths taking you to scenic spots, along pretty rivers, through open commons and rolling landscapes.

To provide some inspiration for great days out we’ve teamed up with Barons Pub Company and created five walking guides that explore the variety that Surrey’s landscape has to offer. You will be able to explore the joys of Ashtead Common, Hawley Common and Horsell Common, the waterside tranquillity of the Mill Bourne and the ancient woodlands and pretty churches that Surrey has to offer. Every walk starts and finishes from one of the portfolio of Barons Pubs. Open for food and drink all day, every day they are the ideal establishments for re-charging your batteries.

Helen Pillinger, Operations Director for Barons Pub Company, explains the value of the partnership...

‘Barons Pub Company currently manages five pubs in Surrey, all close to major road networks but also to the beautiful Surrey countryside. We are delighted with the walks that iFootpath has put together for us, each starting and finishing at our friendly and welcoming pubs.

‘A delicious meal, a quick pint or a frothy cappuccino awaits walkers at the end of the each of the five walks. We have lovely sunny patios and gardens for the summer and cosy fires burning in winter. Dogs are welcome in many of our pubs and we’re very child-friendly with kids’ menus, outside play areas and colouring competitions. See our website, www.baronspubs.com, for full details.’

Length

The length of our walking guides is given in miles and rounded to the nearest full mile (whole number) for simplicity. For short walks (of less than 2 miles) or walks that have a length that ends in .5, a more accurate walk length may be given in the first section of the walk introduction. For example, the Length in the header may be listed as 6 miles, and the introduction may confirm that the exact length of the walk is 5.5 miles. The walk length is calculated from the GPS file that was created by the walk author GPS tracking the walk whilst walking, using the iFootpath App GPS Tracker, meaning it is very accurate. Our bespoke tracker is particularly detailed and plots a walkers position about every 10 seconds. The tracker is calibrated to match two other reputable map and walking sources, Ordnance Survey and Nike. As with all standardised walk and map lengths, the distance does not take account of hills and slopes, just the distance you would measure using a piece of string on a flat map version of the terrain, so hilly walks will feel longer than stated. If you track the route using another GPS App or Tracker App or Fitness Device, you can expect the distance you record to be different due to different calibrations. This is particularly true of those Apps and devices that count your motion and steps – these can only guess the distance you have travelled with each step and so are much less accurate.

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult the terrain is that you will encounter along the way. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. It takes into account things like hills, path surfaces and obstacles (like stiles, gates, steps and rock scrambles). An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 Boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 Boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles that require scrambling with your hands. Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.

NOTE: Do be aware that the level of stamina required for any walk will vary depending on both the walk length and the difficulty grade - you should only walk within your limits.
