Busbridge Parish Council

Walking in Busbridge

Busbridge Parish is served by a great network of public footpaths and with only a small amount of minor roads to cross or walk along, it is possible to walk from one end of the Parish to the other by footpath and to nearly do a circular walk of the Parish.

 

The majority of the Parish is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) or an Area of Great Landscape Value (AGLV.)

 

From the North end of the Parish at Cattershall, it is possible to walk up to Munstead, (Munstead Heath Road), across to Winkworth Arboretum, and on to Hydon's Ball via Busbridge Woods. Busbridge Woods also links across to the back of Tuesley and Busbridge Lakes, joining Tuesley Farm and footpaths to Milford Station and the Portsmouth Road behind Milford Hospital.

 

The footpaths vary in width and surface but are generally in good condition, with the exception of bridleway 163. At present the bridge on this bridleway crossing over Busbridge Lakes, linking Tuesley and Quarter Mile Road to Clockbarn Farm and Hambledon Road, is damaged and inaccessible to walkers from Godalming to Hydon's Ball. Surrey County Council are hopefully going to address the issue as soon as possible.
