Sorting pictures on the Wey

Cannot stop taking pictures while discovering this old Navigation. It stops at Godalming just south of Guildford and was originally created in 1651. The Wey and Aron Canal past Guildford originally went all the way to the south coast but is not navigable now. So later we will be forced to turn and go back to the Thames. The pictures will eventually get uploaded to our website.

On the way the river went off at several weirs while the Navigation turned a few sharp corners to rejoin the river a few locks up.  Rock n Roll turning the corner.
Vertical rollers at some corners are useful when towing with a rope.
  Next day we progressed to Guildford and stopped at the meadow south of the town.
