Bentley to Farnham Walk & Wild Swimming

Wednesday 15th August

This is a 13 mile walk with a swim at Great Frensham pond.  The pond looks natural but is artificial, it was dug out in the Middle Ages for the Bishop of Windsor as a fish pond.
 
We meet at 0915 for the 0934 to Clapham Junction arriving at 0944.  We then catch the 10.00 to Bentley arriving at 11.02.
 
We walk though a forest and then pick up the Shipwrights way path.  We then continue to our lunch stop at Frensham Great pond, here you can swim, I am hopeful the pond is not too dry for a full swim. 
I have been told that the pond can dry out in Summer, a paddle is still possible.  
There is a cafe here too, where we can get a meal.  Dogs are welcome.
 
We then continue to Farnham on the second part of our walk, we pass Moor Park House which is not open to the public, it does have a notice board.  We also see the remains of a WW2 pilbox.
 
The trains from Farnham run every half an hour on our return journey.
