Hunt Nature Park

A new wildlife reserve at Hunt Nature Park, Shalford, Surrey has been created by volunteers from the Wey & Arun Canal Trust, which is restoring the canal as a public amenity and ‘green corridor’ in Surrey and West Sussex.

Enhancements include scrub clearance, the planting of native trees and the clearing of shallow ponds to attract wildfowl and insects such as dragonflies.

The park straddles the Cranleigh Waters stream, a tributary of the River Wey, and is alongside the long-distance Wey-South Path and Downs Link Bridleway on the route of the disused Guildford to Horsham railway line.

It features a wheelchair-accessible riverside path, a viewing platform offering vistas of meadowland and magnificent veteran oak trees, cycle racks and picnic tables.

Further down the Wey-South Path, walkers and cyclists can explore the canal route to discover structures including a unique bridge and an aqueduct and view the section alongside Dunsfold Park due to be reopened to navigation in September 2016.

Hunt Nature Park is on the A281 Horsham road in Shalford, with a public parking area at the junction of the A281 and Trunley Heath Road.
