Triggs Lock on the River Wey Navigation today.

The National Trust River Wey Navigations has joined up with local historian and writer David Rose for a series of guided walks along stretches of the navigation.

Local historian and writer David Rose.

The first is on Saturday, April 23, with a circular walk from Cartbridge at Send (near the New Inn pub), going along the towpath to Triggs Lock.

Then along public footpaths up to St Edward’s Roman Catholic Church at Sutton Green and then back to Cartbridge along further footpaths.

Meet at the car park at Send Evangelical Church on the A247, across the road from Cartbridge, where you may park for free.

There will be plenty of stops in which David will give historical details of the navigation here as well as pointing out other features including its rich natural history.

You will be walking on footpaths and along the edge of fields, so boots are advised if the ground is wet. There will be some uneven ground and a couple of stiles to negotiate.

The walk will start at 11am and finish at 1pm.

£6 per person. Book now. Phone 01483 561389, or send an email to: riverwey@nationaltrust, and click here for more details.
