Godalming Town Walks start again in May.
Learn more about the history of Godalming. Guided town walks will take place on the following days.
May 11th - Looks at the industrial history of the town and the influence it had on the buildings. It ends with a walk up Church Street looking at the timber-framed buildings, two of which are 15th Century, eight are 16th, six are 17th, three are 18th, six are 19th and the few remaining are 20th Century.
June 8th - Will give general background and then set off along the High Street. The High Street was part of the main road between London and Portsmouth and had five coaching inns, The Red Lion, The White Hart (once called The Antelope), The Angel, The Great George and The Kings Arms. With the exception of The Angel, the buildings are still on the High Street, although only two as hotels. In 1859 the arrival of the railway gave a quicker route from London to Portsmouth. The walk continues into Bridge Street.
July 13th - As May walk
August 10th - As June walk
All walks are free and start at 2:30pm at the Pepperpot. The walking is gentle and the walk usually lasts about an hour and a half. Just turn up. If the walks have to be cancelled a notice will be posted on the Pepperpot door.
The walks are organised by The Godalming Trust in association with Godalming Together CIC.
