We stopped today for a brief visit to Dapdune Wharf, a National Trust property on the River Wey in Guildford.

According to the National Trust website, the Wey was one of the first British rivers to be made navigable, and opened to barge traffic in 1653. One of the barges built at Dapdune Wharf is on display at the site, together with a number of other buildings (including this Smithy) which illustrate the history of the wharf and the navigation.

We only had time for a brief visit on the way to a family lunch, but we may stop by again for a more relaxed stroll around the area.
