Farnham & District Ramblers


Farnham Ramblers are a very active and friendly group of over 500 members. We organise walks on most days of the week which vary in length from 3 miles to 10 miles.


We all know the benefits of exercise in the fresh air with great company and lovely views, so we are pleased to welcome you for 2 or 3 walks to see if you like us before joining!


We invite you to visit our website www.farnhamramblers.org.uk or phone/email 01252 725899 chairman@farnhamramblers.org.uk for details of the walks and to answer any questions you may have.


In 2019, the Ramblers are helping the Festival by organising and leading the following walks:

Tuesday 21 May - Walking from Alton to Farnham along the St Swithun's Way - an 11-mile undulating walk along part of the St Swithun's Way using unsurfaced paths. Rain not guaranteed!

Sunday 26 May - The Bourne footpaths history - a 4-mile hilly walk at a gentle pace with some history about the names of the footpaths.

Monday 27 May - Tilford to Frensham Pond - a 4.5-mile walk, firstly, through the Bourne Woods and RSPB land to Frensham Little Pond and the National Trust café, returning through woods to Tilford. Refreshments at Frensham and excellent pub on Tilford Green.

Tuesday 28 May - Farnham’s Brewing Heritage - a 4-mile walk that will explore how Farnham has benefited over many years from the brewing industry. Towards the end of the walk, we will visit the Museum of Farnham where there will be some displays particularly relating to Farnham's role in the hop growing industry and the wealth it enjoyed.

Thursday 30 May - Farnham watermills - a 7-mile walk in an elongated ellipse along the Wey, looking at history, use and siting of the watermills and river re-routing for flood prevention. You'll see 4 mills (plus the remains of 2 more) and a very long leat.

Friday 31 May - Exploring paths around Pierrepont - a 4.5 mile walk exploring the paths, tracks, woods, and meadows around Frensham village and Pierrepont House and Farm.
