The Wey Navigation is one of the jewels in Surrey’s crown. Constructed a hundred years before the canal age, the Navigation runs for just under 20 miles from the Thames at Weybridge to Godalming. The Navigation and its towpath provide a tranquil green corridor through some of Surrey’s loveliest countryside. On this workshop, we will visit two of the loveliest, and quietest, locks on the whole Navigation. Papercourt Lock is the focus of our morning’s shooting. This is arguably the most picturesque of all the Wey locks, with many excellent compositions to be explored at the lock as well as across water meadows from the towpath just beyond. After lunch (included) at the New Inn, Cartbridge, we will walk to Triggs Lock (approx 1.5 miles round trip), another lovely place where the light is better in the afternoon.
This workshop is led by Rachael and will suit all levels of experience, from beginner to enthusiast. Papercourt Lock, in particular, offers excellent opportunities to practice long exposure photography. If you use ND filters, you will definitely want to bring them along!
