Canal History


In the 19th century it was possible to travel by boat from London to Littlehampton on the south coast, passing through Weybridge, Guildford, Pulborough and Arundel.
The route was via the rivers Wey and Arun, which were linked by the 23-mile Wey and Arun Canal. This enabled people to go from the River Thames in London to the English Channel.
Sadly the route fell into disuse when railways became established. Fortunately volunteers are now restoring the waterway…
