Pribright Ride – Sheets Heath, Bisley to Chobham Golf Club:

The ride is about 6 miles long and takes about one and a half hours.

  • Sheets Heath is situated a short distance from Pirbright village green. From the green, take the A324 Dawney Hill towards Brookwood. After the railway tunnel turn left towards the National Shooting Centre. Turn right into Queens Road and take the first right into an unmade road, signposted Sheets Heath.

  • Follow this track for half a mile until it divides into three other unmade roads. Take the unmade road immediately on your left, passing Sheets Heath house. The track becomes bridleway 413 after 50 yards.

  • Follow this bridleway over the stream (the stream is shallow enough to be forded, otherwise there is a strong concrete bridge you can use). Turn right at the T-junction.

  • Follow this track (which is nice for canter!), passing a five-bar gate. You will now be on an unmade road. Follow this road for a few yards. It then becomes Stafford Lake and you'll pass the Princess Christian Nursing Home on your left. This single-track road is very quiet, so no need to worry about traffic.

  • Turn left off the tarmac road onto the bridleway, clearly marked with a fingerpost. Follow the bridleway, passing Stafford Lake Farm and fields with horses on the left. This track is good for a trot or canter. You will then come to Strawberry Farm on your left. Cross over their driveway, keeping the open commonland on your right and the woods on your left. You'll see a path going into the woods – take this and keep going straight on. The path eventually turns into another unmade track which heads down towards the A322 Bagshot Road.

  • There is a Pegasus Crossing point on the road, so its easy to navigate. Cross over and continue along the bridleway to Church Lane. The bridleway is very long and great for a trot or canter.

  • When you get to Church Lane, turn right and travel along the lane for 50 yards or so, then turn left into Hill Place Farm. Follow the bridleway round and it turns into a narrower bridleway that takes you in a large circular ride around Chobham Golf Club. The bridleway has been recently resurfaced, so is excellent for trotting and cantering.

  • There are several short bridleways signposted off the main one, but these only go down to busy roads, so not worth investigating unless you are adventurous and want to hack to Chobham.
