Tranquil waterway running for nearly 20 miles through the heart of Surrey
The Wey was one of the first British rivers to be made navigable, and opened to barge traffic in 1653.
This 15-mile waterway linked Guildford to Weybridge on the Thames, and then to London.
The Godalming Navigation, opened in 1764, enabled barges to work a further four miles upriver.
The award-winning visitor centre at Dapdune Wharf in Guildford tells the story of the navigations and the people who lived and worked on them.
Visitors can see where the huge Wey barges were built and climb aboard 'Reliance', one of three surviving barges.
