Churt is surrounded by wonderful countryside to explore. There is a Walking Group you can join with if you would like company.
Ten Walks in and around Churt
Churt is in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by wonderful countryside to explore. These walks were originally created and published in booklet form in 1994 by Michael Stenning, who was then the Postmaster at Churt Post Office. With Michael’s kind permission, these walks have been revised and republished digitally in 2021 by the Churt Environment Working Group. They are of varying lengths and level of difficulty; some are suitable for family walking whilst others are for more serious hikers. The roads are much busier now than they were in 1994 when the walks were originally created, so be sure to take great care when walking on the short stretches of road which join up the footpaths and commons. Particular care should be taken on the stretches of Jumps Road and on the Thursley Road.
