Annual Meeting of the Wey & Arun Canal Trust

Make a Day of It!

Why not "Make a Day of it" and take a walk to Harsfold Bridge, or bring your canoe to Gennets Bridge Lock and enjoy being on the water. Details of both events below.

Canoe at Gennets Bridge Lock

Canoe on our new restored section of canal at Gennets Bridge Lock.  We can now offer this short stretch open to small unpowered boats, canoes and paddleboards during the morning. Please note that access is restricted due to lack of a large car park, so we will need to introduce timed entries. The first will be at 10.30am, and the second one at 11.30am. This only applies to those who need to use their car + boats, there is plenty of towpath to enjoy for walkers who would like to visit. Refreshments will be available.

Registration will be available shortly



Walk to Harsfold Bridge

Our second activity will be a walk to Harsfold bridge, starting at 10:30 to allow time to get back to Billingshurst for the AGM.
