The River Wey

A Collection of Photographs taken by Tony Clayton


1 - Godalming to Unstead Lock


7 - New Haw Lock to the Thames <<-- : -->> 2 - Unstead Lock


Those photographs below taken in 1980 show the river in an unusual state, in that the reach between Unstead Lock and Catteshall Lock had been drained down for work to be carried out on Unstead Weir. Nonetheless they are of interest showing the shallow state of the canalised sections of the navigation at that time.
