PRIVATE CRUISE & SUMMER LUNCH ON THE WEY & ARUN CANAL Sunday 9th August 2020. £76.00pp

A private Awaydays charter for us. 3hr cruise along the Wey & Arun Canal. Cold buffet lunch with drinks served whilst we enjoy this peaceful trip and keeping an eye out for wildlife along the way.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 route was via the rivers Wey and Arun, linked between Shalford in Surrey, and Pallingham in Sussex, by the 23-mile Wey and Arun Canal.
Although only one part of an extensive system, the Wey and Arun Canal formed a vital link, the only one between the south coast and the Thames, linking London and the busy river Thames with the English Channel – and beyond.
Depart Faversham at 10.30am by minibus and arrive at Loxwood, Sussex. Then board Zachariah Keppel for a tranquil 3 ½ hrs glide along the Wey & Arun. During the cruise picnic cold lunch will be served with wine or soft drinks. Max 14 persons. (Lunch consists of salmon en-croute, home cooked gammon, coronation chicken, vegetable flan, various salads, cheesecakes, rolls and butter, white wine, orange juice, lemonade, waters)
