Wey and Arun Canal

The Wey & Arun Canal.

London's Lost Route to the Sea" The Wey & Arun Canal runs through Surrey and West Sussex in Southern England.

In 1970 a few enthusiastic individuals formed the Wey & Arun Canal Society. More supporters were quickly gained, and in 1973 the Society was re-formed as a charitable Trust Company, the Wey & Arun Canal Trust Limited.

In the 19th century it was possible to travel by boat from London to Littlehampton on the south coast of England via Weybridge, Guildford, Pulborough and Arundel. This was just part of a once-extensive system of inland waterways covering England and Wales.

The Trust has several ongoing restoration projects, and lengths of the canal are now in water. A 30 seat trip boat on the canal runs cruises on the idyllic Loxwood section of the canal.

Public trips take place every Saturday, Sunday and public holidays.
