Meet at Godalming Wharf (free parking), off Woolsack Way GU7 1LQ  for a 10.30am start.

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 four miles (three hours).
