Wey Navigation at Weybridge

On a lovely spring morning I walked Molly down a towpath of the Wey Navigation. The River Way joins the Thames at Weybridge with a complicated network of streams, rivers, canals, locks and islands. The National Trust conserves the stretch at Weybridge with its quiet lock and keepers cottage. On the other banks are large gardens and expensive houses with their own moorings.

This area is well used by the local sporting enthusiasts especially rowers, canoeists, runners and tennis players. Of course the Dog Walkers are out in force and enjoying the unexpected warm Spring sunshine.

I took some photos on the walk and I’ve produced a couple of paintings from them.
