Guildford Ramblers’ Footpath Team Tackles Tasks In Shalford

Guildford Ramblers’ volunteer path-maintenance team has been out in the Shalford area tackling tasks agreed with Surrey County Council.

The two main tasks were renewing wooden slats on some steps on a slope which otherwise would become very slippery when wet, and tougher than usual clearing of a very overgrown footpath.

New steps being built in Shalford on a footpath that leads down to the River Wey.

The leader of the team, Brian O’Connell, said: “Some of the work was really back-breaking this month, but we can always find a range of tasks to allow for every level of fitness. The final result was something that made us all proud – although we may return at a later date to put in additional wooden slats.”

All are welcome to join Guildford Ramblers on one of their walks.

There is an eight- to 10-mile walk every weekend (usually on Saturday) and a five- to six-mile walk on a Wednesday morning.

There is a shorter ‘taster’ walk on the first Monday morning of the month.
