RIVER WEY

x
Sunday 31 January 2016

Wey Navigation from Godalming to Guildford. A licence or Canoe England membership is required. We need to do a short car ferry to enable a one way trip. A trip just over 6 miles, passing the junction with the Wey and Arun canal. Flat water, so suitable for all craft. Some portages are required. Also there's a good towpath for any non-paddlers who would like to accompany us on foot. We will stop for a lunch break, so bring some refreshment.

NOTE: Weather and excessive rainfall could prevent this trip.

Programme and Notes: Meet at 09.45 (to give time for car ferry) Lets plan to meet at the usual place on north side of canal near Stoke Bridge, on the A320 to Woking, just off the A3. Map ref 186 998511. Post code  GU11LN . Access from roundabout just north of bridge, turn west then first left towards canal. Do not use the Kayak club car park. We will aim to transfer boats to just a few cars for the short drive to Godalming and leave other cars in the road by the canal and pub.

So bring your kit neatly packed, ready for a quick transfer to another car. (If there is a lot of interest I may call folks to arrange an improved car ferry plan). Godalming location is MR 972440 Post code GU71HR. A3100 from Guildford. Take first exit at roundabout before Godalming, Bridge road, this takes you over river and canal. IMMEDIATELY after next roundabout turn right into The Burys. First small car park on left is best but bigger second one has toilets at top.(Walking distance from first.)

At finish, before departing, please check if any drivers need a lift from you to retrieve their cars from Godalming.
