A moderate road ride from Godalming station to Elstead, Cutt Mill and Puttenham village finishing with Shackleford and Eashing
Take the Northbound exit gate (you may have to use the bridge to cross) out of Godalming station on to a small road New Way and turn left, and continue right up a gravelled bridlepath. Join a metalled path that curves through farmland and look out for Fitzpatrick Referrals (Channel 4’s Supervet) on the right hand side. Turn right on Eashing Lane and follow the road down and turn sharp right into Eashing, passing The Stag on the River on your left. Go over a narrow picturesque double medieval bridge and as you approach the A3 switch to the right hand side bridlepath. Turn right up and over a footbridge over the A3 and on to farmland. You are now on the Cycle Surrey Hills Puttenham Loop. Follow the signs around the field, through a gate, up another field and turn left on Elstead Road. The road goes downhill and then over another very narrow bridge on Shackleford Road. Past an office estate turn right and then right again onto Milford road. Go through the village (you’ll find a Spar shop and The Woolpack on the village green) and past The Golden Fleece pub, over a narrow bridge, past the Mill pub and then just after turn right on Fullbrook Lane.
Follow the lane up to a crossroads at Cutt Mill, going straight across on Suffield Lane past the Cutt Mill ponds on either side. You can easily explore the ponds and Puttenham Common from here. Carry on Suffield Lane through fields with lovely open views, passing Puttenham Priory on the right hand side before arriving in Puttenham village and The Good Intent pub. Turn right uphill past the church and then right on the busy Puttenham Heath Road. Turn right past The Jolly Farmer on to a beautiful rural lane, Hook Lane. This lane goes downhill, turning in to Puttenham Lane and emerges into Shackleford village. Bear right at the village shop on Pepperharrow Lane with a recommended stop at The Cyder House Inn on the left.
Shortly after the cricket green turn left on a signposted bridleway, which emerges on the Elstead Road. Cross the road and you will rejoin the Cycle Surrey Hills signs which take you back the way you cam in to Eashing and a return via New Way to Godalming station.
