The River Wey is owned and operated by the National Trust and as you would expect of the NT all the locks are tidy and well maintained.

Newark Priory and beautiful countryside

Below is Dapdune Wharf.

As we had been told it was not possible to book a mooring here only later to find it was, we were a little unhappy. Needless to say, we took the matter up verbally and subsequently by email!

Here we met James Gates sailor, rope maker extraoardinaire, writer and family historian. We enjoyed our conversation with him and can only say what a great asset the NT has with volunteers like him!

An old Wey barge and below a rhyme!

Opposite our mooring was the  very busy Sea Scout Operation

Guildford itself is a very pleasant town The High Street runs up from the river and has some fine old buildings and the remains of a castle. Fantastic bedding out in the Castle grounds.

An this is what pleased us

Abbots hospital

Old coaching inn

The clock and looking down the High Street from the Guildhall
