Meet at 10.30 at the Shere village car park (no charge currently) at the edge of the village. Postcode GU5. 9HE, Surrey Street Atlas P 133, A 4, or OS map EXP 145 GR 073480.
Approach via the A 25 from Dorking, after leaving Gomshall bear left, signposted Shere, passing the village school on your right. After meeting the main street on the left (Middle St.), go straight ahead and follow the signs to almost immediately access the car park on your right.
This walk is over fairly flat terrain, 4.5-5.0 miles, comfortable pace to suit all members of the party.
The route will take us through the rolling countryside towards Peaslake, returning along the edge of Albury Park to the car park. From there I suggest we stroll to the White Horse facing the triangle, where I will book a table for lunch/snacks as members wish. Please settle your own bills.
All members and friends welcome, but all walk at their own risk. Please wear boots. Paths will be muddy if after rain, and some paths will be overgrown-it`s that time of year-so be careful underfoot. When in lanes, please take care, preferably facing oncoming traffic.

Walking through undulating country, nothing difficult, along well-defined bridle-ways or permissive estate footpaths, pace to ensure all can keep-up.

3 September 2018. From Albury to Chilworth Gunpowder works and back. 4.5 miles.
Meet at Albury Sports Ground at 10:30. O.S. Explorer map145, G.R. Ref.059469, or Surrey Street Atlas P132 D2. The entrance is at the intersection of New Rd., and Park Rd. Parking currently free.
Directions:- from Dorking, take the A25 west, by-passing Shere, towards Silent Pool. Turn left on to the A248 (signposted Albury). At the first 90 degree bend to the right, carry straight on by taking the lane facing you, continue straight on for approx.one km until you meet the junction with Park Rd. The sports ground is on the right.
A generally easy walk across gently undulating countryside, but with one short ascent (a bit steep).We will pass through Albury (possible coffee stop), then follow the picturesque Tilling Bourne valley, passing the lakes and restored Albury Mill before crossing fields to reach the Chilworth Gunpowder Mill which we can explore.
Guildford Borough Council have created a park featuring the remains of the Middle Mill, and at the same time creating a conservation area. There is a picnic site where we can take a break, and there are a number of information points where usually there are pamphlets available. The overall site dates from the early 17th century, being established by the East India Company as a market for Saltpetre which it shipped from India, for the production of Gunpowder (used in the Civil War). Peak production was from 1880 onward, particularly in the first world war. All production ceased in 1920.
We will return across fields from which we will have a constant view of the North Downs.
After, I suggest we stop for lunch/snack in Shere, or at the Henry VIII in Little London which has recently been re-furbished while respecting the old internal features. Visitors,wives,and partners welcome.
