Welcome to the GOC Surrey Homepage:

GOC Surrey had its 1st walk on 29th January 1995 and has walked on the 4th Sunday of each month since. 
We usually have over thirty men and women turn up, so you are sure to find someone to share the beautiful Surrey views with and plenty of interesting conversation. If you rely on public transport then a brief message posted on the event page normally ensures that you have a lift from a convenient train station.  Our walks are predominantly circular between 8 – 12 miles long. Lunch is a packed lunch and we always end the walk with a hot drink and home baked cake brought in by some members (if Mrs Beeton were alive, she could judge the competitive cake makers). 
We are a friendly group of people and always welcome new members. Coming along to your first event can be a daunting prospect but don’t let that stop you as many of us attended on our own and love to mix with whoever turns up. GOC has a try before you buy approach where you attend 3 events before you need to join up to receive event details. To get details of any walks you would like to try please contact Gordon Pullenger.
Most importantly of all; the Surrey group is your group and suggestions on events you’d like to see or thoughts of how the group can progress are always welcome.
The Coordinator for GOC Surrey is Gordon Pullenger and he can be contacted here

Hazelmere to the Devil's Punchbowl

24 Sep 2018 | Surrey Group

The day started inauspiciously: the weather forecast was ominous threatening heavy rain for the morning, not clearing until about 1400 and there were engineering works between Guildford and Haslemere.

However, four brave souls drove through the heavy rain and we waited for the rail replacement buses to arrive, just in case there were any more walkers....

A wander round wonderful Woldingham

27 Aug 2018 | Surrey Group

Despite the leaden skies 25 of us including two new members set off on the walk round Woldingham, led by Judy through some stunning countryside. As the rain intensified so did our determination to press on regardless, after a morning coffee break we enjoyed some impressive views of the Northdowns on route to Judy & Alice's house....

Ockley Amble

23 Jul 2018 | Surrey Group

On Sunday morning 16 hardy walkers set out from the attractive village green at Ockley with temperatures already in the mid twenties. Temperatures climbed steadily through the day, but it was often over cast and this tempered the heat. We came across a couple of fields containing freshly clipped alpacas who found our group of walkers fascinating, but they don’t get out much....

Effingham Forest and Netley Heath

27 Jun 2018 | Surrey Group

The sun shone all the day during our walk on Sunday and twenty two walkers (plus one dog) enjoyed a stunning walk led by Patrick L. The recent dry spell meant that the walk was mud free, I cannot recall when that last happened. About half of the walk was through woodland so we walked in dappled shade as well as the sun....
