Cobham Conservation and Heritage Trust

Walking Guides Library

To promote the use of our local footpaths and to help those who may be unfamiliar with where some of these footpaths are, we have begun building a library of walking guides.

These guides will provide details such as the length - both in distance and time - and interesting things to look out for during the walk.

To view or print the guide click on the download link below. Each guide is supplied as a PDF file that all computers, tablets, and smartphones can display. The guides can also be downloaded and printed using your own printer.

Members who receive our quarterly newsletter will see details of new guides as they are published.

If you have a walk you would like to suggest we feature or would like to get involved in creating the guides, please contact Sue Prentice at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. as we would be very pleased to hear from you.
