The Fox Way Walk Link 7: Warplesdon to Ripley Village

June 26, 2017 @ 1:13 pm

The Fox Way Walk is a 39-mile circular walk which takes in the lovely countryside around Guildford and can be completed in 7 key stages (links). Fresh Air Outdoor training have arranged to complete a different ‘link’ of this walk on the first Sunday of each month – it’s a great way to explore the great Surrey countryside in a friendly group!


Link 7: Warplesdon to Ripley Village (returning by taxi)
Sunday 2 July 2017, 9:00am (meet at Warplesdon Station – see below)
Intensity level: low impact
Fitness Level: beginner to advanced

We intend to start the walk at Warplesdon Station and finish at Ripley Village Green, allowing roughly 3 hours to complete the walk, aiming to be finished by 12.00 noon. We will aim to pre-order taxis to save some time.
This link is 6.5 miles in total so we ask that you pack plenty of snacks and water. We will aim to have coffee and cake in the tea room in Ripley Village at the end.

Please email or phone Fresh Gym reception on 01932 225 953 if you’re joining us as it would be handy to know numbers. If you are coming on your own and would like a lift, please also let us know as there will be space in cars. Do invite your friends and family – this walk is for everyone.

Meeting point – please note we no longer meet at Fresh Gym
We ask that people meet at Worplesdon Station to begin the walk at 9.00 a.m. There is parking at the station, please use postcode GU22 0RN for directions.

Driving / car sharing
We ask that people car share where possible. If you are coming on your own, then you can jump in the car with one of us! Just let us know your preference.

Intensity level: low impact
This walk is suitable for all abilities and is a mix of road and woodland. Friends, family, accompanied children and dogs are definitely welcome (see notes on children and dogs below!).

Weather contingency
Please bring suitable walking attire, especially appropriate footwear, as paths may be muddy from rain. Welly boots are certainly an option. If it’s sunny, remember your hat, sun cream and shades!

Snacks and water
Each person is responsible for bringing their own snacks and water.

Dogs can be brought on this walk and must be kept under close control at all times. Please be advised that we will be walking along the road at points and dogs will need to be placed on a lead where necessary or as requested.

Accompanied children under 18 are welcome. Please be aware that some parts of the route will involve walking along the road (without a marked footpath). Constant supervision will be required at all times.
