Guildford waterway with river barge

This morning we went to Guildford to visit Lizanne, who we had met on the Camino. With her husband, Peter, we walked along the river Wey. Colourful barges were cruising by and we passed St Catherine’s Lock, where the boats can be lifted by water. After lunch at a pub, we returned via the ruins of an abbey and climbed a cliff of golden sands above a former ford. It is said that the name of the town refers to the guilded colour of the sand above the river ford. Another beautiful part of England.
