HOW TO GET THERE
Clandon Wood Natural Burial Ground
Clandon Wood is within easy reach of the A3 and M25. Clandon station is a 25 minute walk and Guildford station is a short taxi ride away.
From the A3 coming from London: take the B2039 / B2215 (A247) exit off the A3, then take the second exit from the roundabout onto the Portsmouth Road (B2215). This road takes you through Ripley – eventually you will reach a roundabout, take the first exit onto the A247 Clandon Road. Continue on this road driving through West Clandon, then turn right onto the A25 and the entrance to Clandon Wood Natural Burial Ground will be on your left.
Alternative route from the A3: take the Burpham/Merrow exit, then turn left into New Inn Lane just after the BP petrol station signposted towards Merrow, then turn right onto Park Lane B2234 and then turn left onto the Epsom Road A25 signposted towards Dorking and Leatherhead. The entrance to Clandon Wood Nature Reserve and Burial Ground will be on the left hand side after one mile, signposted Clandon Wood Natural Burial (do not take the earlier Clandon Park turnoff).
The Horse & Groom
The Horse & Groom is located in the village of Merrow, which is a 5 minute drive from Clandon Wood Nature Reserve.
When exiting from Clandon Wood, you can only turn left onto the A246 Epsom Road, so continue for just over half a mile to where there is an opportunity to turn right and do a u-turn onto the opposite carriageway. You will then drive back past Clandon Wood, continue straight across the first roundabout staying on the A25, then at the next roundabout take the second turning (still A25) and you will see The Horse & Groom on the right hand side, where there is plenty of parking.
So sorry I can’t be there to say goodbye mate. Lots of happy memories , rest easy Will
