PAST RIPLEY VILLAGE, NEAR NEWARK PRIORY, AND ON TOWARDS GUILDFORD AND ST. CATHERINE'S CHAPEL

PAST RIPLEY VILLAGE, NEAR NEWARK PRIORY, AND ON TOWARDS GUILDFORD AND ST. CATHERINE'S CHAPEL

Surmounting Pain's Hill, we traverse Wisley Common and so enter Ripley, where we reach another coaching inn, the Talbot (bottom right), with a Georgian front. An excursion from the main road takes us over the way to Newark Hill and Newark Priory (bottom left), founded by Ronald de Calva, about the reign of Richard I, for Augustine canons. It was surrendered to the commissioners of Henry VIII in 1538. Continuing towards Guildford, we pass the entrance to Sutton Place (top left), residence of the Duke of Sutherland. On reaching Guildford we ascend St. Catherine's Hill to the Chapel, once a shrine for pilgrims on the Southampton-Canterbury route. It was built about 1317.
