Guildford to Newark New Bridge.

Friday - Early start today as rain was expected at noon, although sunny a chill to the air meant we had our fleeces on as we started the return trip back to the Thames. 

We enjoy the Wey burbling through a green belt of some of Surrey's finest landscape, so glad the National Trust looks after this waterway, you wont find any shoddy developments here. Of course the M25 & a few busy A roads can be heard from time to time along it's length but mostly it is bird song that can be heard. 

Tonight the three crews will meet up at The Anchor for a last supper we have had some good tow path banter and beer on this trip but now Richard & Linda are heading off across the channel - even boaters need a holiday. 

Sunday we will try and find somewhere to watch the England v Wales rugby game. Roly & Bev being from the 'valleys' will be in good voice and trying to drown out any rendition of Swing Low.
