Farnham & District Ramblers

South-west Surrey

First let me thank our 18 strong Ramblers Maintenance team for all their hard work on the eight miles of the North Downs Way Trail from the start at Hickley’s Corner to the A3 underpass plus the Puttenham Golf Club task. We erected many new waymark posts and fingerposts, cleared vegetation and dug out an old kissing gate. We have made these rights of way much easier for walkers. I would also like to thank our team leaders of David Ross, Alan Keeley, Alan Buttery and Mary SJ a great task and an additional thank you to Mary for typing up the condition report on our section of the North Downs Way for the trail manager and SCC.

We enjoyed seeing the unveiling of the sculptured sign for the start of the North Downs Way Trail last Thursday and the launch of Google Trekker of the trail. The same as street view but for the trail, the first national trail given this treatment.
