A 3.5 mile (5 km) gently undulating circular walk from Puttenham Common through woodland at the foot of the Hog’s Back ridge.
Puttenham village has some of the last remaining hop gardens in Surrey. Oast houses were built here in the nineteenth century to dry hops before they were transported to breweries in Guildford and London. In 1223 the manor of Puttenham (now known as Puttenham Priory) was divided between two sisters, one of whom gave her half to the Augustinian Priory of Newark near Ripley.
