Farnham Walker: St Swithin's Way Pt.1

Every Tuesday across the four weeks of Guildford Walkfest we will follow a section of the North Downs Way or St Swithin's Way on our journey from the Cathedral town of Guildford to Winchester  Please feel free to join us on this section and any others you fancy.  There is no requirement to complete all four parts.
