Walk the Otter Wey trail to see a parade of more than 40 decorated otters. The otters will be on display around Farnham until Friday 29 June.

About the otters

There are 44 one-metre tall otters to be seen on the Otter Wey trail.

The otters have been decorated by a mix of professional, amateur and community group artists and sponsored by local businesses and organisations.

The otter was chosen as a way to raise awareness about the importance of clean rivers and the return of the creature to the River Wey near Farnham.

The Otter trail is 3.7 miles long. You can decide where to start and end your walk.

About the project

The Otter Wey trail is a fundraising project that was adopted by the former Mayor of Farnham, Councillor Mike Hodge to raise money for Woodlarks and Brightwells Gostrey Centre. The project has been run by Farnham Lions, and Blooming Arts. Additional support has been given by the Farnham South Street Trust and the Farnham Institute charities.
