Lunchtime talk: The Wey and Arun Canal

Horsham Library - Tuesday 28 November

Event information

The Wey and Arun Junction Canal opened in 1816 to provide a safe route from London to Portsmouth to supply the dockyards, and in its heyday it carried many tons of cargo.

The end of the Napoleonic wars and the arrival of the railway, sounded its death knell and by 1871 it had closed; but now work is ongoing to re-open the canal for leisure use.

Come along to this illustrated talk to learn more about the history of the canal and the restoration work that has been achieved to date.
