Members are encouraged to ‘make a day of it’ when they come to the 2017 Annual Meeting.
Two special free WACT events have been arranged for the morning of Saturday, April 29th, prior to the meeting in the afternoon. There is also the opportunity for new members to meet with Trustees, and learn more about the Trust's work
The Two Bridges Walk
Meet at the far end of Sainsbury’s car park off Stocklund Square in Cranleigh for a 10.30 start. The walk will progress northwards passing under Cranleigh’s Elmbridge Road railway bridge on the Downs Link path. The circular walk is approximately 5km on a firm, level surface. As it can be muddy in places walking boots or wellingtons would be advisable. The walk will be to the site of the Whipley Manor Railway Bridge with a short diversion to look at a Jessop iron swingbridge. Return should be by 12.30 when there will be plenty of time for a lunch at one of the many eating places in Cranleigh
The Summit Saunter
Meet at the now-completed Compasses Bridge and explore the canal southwards to the proposed site for our next major bridge project to get past the blockage in the canal at Dunsfold Road, Tickner’s Heath. On the way we will see the work underway to build our new slipway (about halfway between Compasses and Tickner’s). We will also see how the section of canal that we de-silted in 2013-15 is now looking and we will see the length of canal along which we still need to undertake desilting. Parking will be available on the aerodrome (just the far side of Compasses Bridge). Start time is 10.30. Length of walk approx. 1.5km. Walking boots or wellingtons advised. The walk will finish in time for lunch at the Three Compasses or one of the many eating places in Cranleigh.
