A historic walk around Bletchingley

Discover some of the gems of this historic village, including the gatehouse of Bletchingley Place, a great Tudor House. Mr David Martin of The Bletchingley Conservation and Historical Society is going to take us on a guided tour of the village on the 18th of October.  Parking is available at the village hall, and we will assemble here at 10.15 ready for a 10.30 departure on our walk.

The walk around the village will be on paved walkways without any significant inclines. Children could join the event, but it is not designed for them.  Not suitable for dogs.  Although we will go inside the church, the event is largely outdoors so please come dressed for the prevailing weather conditions.

We have made arrangements to have lunch at the Red Lion where you can choose from their menu – cost not included in the event price.  We will be asking you to pre-order when you receive your confirmation of booking nearer the time, but pay on the day.

We highly recommend the afternoon walk as it will take in Brewer Street and gives views of The Old Rectory (1786).  For this, you will need walking shoes although it is not anticipated to be very rough or muddy underfoot, and there will be no stiles.  The walk is approximately 3 miles long and reasonably flat.

The cost of the event will be £7 for members, £9 for non-members which includes a donation to the Bletchingley Conservation and Historical Society.

Booking is essential. If you would like to join us, you can book your place online or email or on mobile 07530-949302 . Please include your e-mail address or a stamped addressed envelope so you may be sent full details, directions and locations for the visit.
