The River Wey and Basingstoke Canal DVDs are available in our usual three formats:-

  • Popular – like a television programme showing the highlights of the canal
  • Bowcam – a forward facing camera, speeded up for a little fun, showing the whole canal
  • Combined – both Popular and Bowcam in one box for the best of both worlds, saving money and postage.

Starting at Weybridge and the junction with the River Thames we cruise along the River Wey, past Woodham Junction and through lovely open countryside to reach Dapdune Wharf in Guildford and the limit of navigation at Godalming.

From Woodham Junction, we work the locks on the Basingstoke Canal and pass the visitor centre at Mytchett. We operate the swing and lift bridges on our way to the limit of navigation at Greywell Tunnel.

Continuing on foot, we follow the route of the abandoned canal into Basingstoke.
