Guided walk round Godalming with David Rose

Join local historian and writer David Rose for a walk that takes in the final stretch of the Godalming Navigation and part of the River Wey itself upstream from the town centre.

  • Booking essential

The first part of the walk will be a circular route downstream along the towpath and back via the Lammas Lands. Then, through Phillips Memorial Park, with the memorial to Farncombe man Jack Phillips, a radio operator on the ill-fated ship Titanic. The route then follows a footpath from Westbrook Mills along a beautiful tranquil stretch beside the non-navigable Wey, probably usually only known to locals and anglers! The walk returns to Godalming Wharf via the town. Plenty of local history facts along the route! Length 4 miles (three hours).
