Come and join us for an afternoons paddle (or walk) along the river Wey!!

The Wey Navigation paddle starting and finishing from Sam Newark Lane Car Park. The car park is on the left hand side of the road when coming from Ripley and about 200m from the traffic lights for the single lane bridge which goes over the River Wey.

The paddle is suitable for all and all craft. There is one lock to Navigate past but there will be help with this.

There is a height barrier at the car park but when it was recently checked it was not in position. The car park will take about a dozen cars so please car share if you can.

We will decide on the day whether to start going up or down river, unless we have heavy rain the flow of the water will be low.

There is a path which runs alongside the river for those who don’t want to paddle, if we go up river there are usually cows in the field with the path.


This event is FREE.
