Getting Active in & around Farnham
Buggy Friendly Walks
Frensham Common, Frensham
A 450 metre 'easier access' loop suitable for wheelchair users and push chairs is located just away from the Great Pond. The route is through a small oak wood with areas of heather. The surface is a mixture of boardwalk and fairly level unsurfaced paths. Wooden planks create a smooth non-slip surface with tap rails, passing places and there are benches for resting.
Starting point: Frensham Common, Priory Lane, Frensham, GU10 3BT
The Blackwater Valley Path, Badshot Lea
The footpath runs for 33 km along the length of the Blackwater River and an 11 km section is accessible for wheelchair users and pushchairs. This section runs from Tices Meadow (Farnham Quarry) north up to Frimley Business Park. The best area to park is in Lower Farnham Road near the Pea Bridge.
Starting point: Tices Meadow, Lower Farnham Road, Aldershot, GU11 3RD

Farnham Hidden Rocks A new craze has hit Farnham called Hidden Rocks! The idea behind it is for children to find these decorated rocks and re-hide them in a different location. There's a main Facebook page called hidden rocks where loads of people are posting their finds and pictures of the rocks they have painted themselves. https://www.facebook.com/groups/238215400053422/about/
