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 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 the first three locks on the Navigation, starting at Thames Lock in Weybridge, the only manned lock on the Navigation. After exploring the lock area, which offers many fine compositions, we will walk along the towpath towards Town Lock. The water moves slowly along this stretch and on a still day offers nearly perfect reflections.
After lunch in Weybridge, we rejoin the towpath at Town Lock and walk towards Coxes Mill and Lock. The mill pond can be a good place to see greater crested grebes and other waterfowl. There are opportunities for macro photography too, depending on the season, as well as, of course, capturing the imposing mill and lock.
This workshop is led by Rachael and will suit all levels of experience, from beginner to enthusiast. The locations offer opportunities to practice long exposure photography. If you use ND filters, you will definitely want to bring them along!
