River Wey & Godalming Navigations & Dapdune Wharf 2024

One of the first British rivers to be made navigable, and opened in 1653. 15 mile waterway linked Guildford to Weybridge on the Thames, and then to London. The Godalming Navigation, opened in 1764, enabled barges to work further upriver. The visitor centre at Dapdune Wharf tells the story of the navigations and the people who worked on them. See where the huge Wey barges were built and climb aboard 'Reliance', one of three surviving barges.
