Please note during the works the towpath may be closed for all public access at times and suitable alternative routes will be signed via Parsonage Meadow (ground conditions permitting) or around Ladymead.

This work is being funded by Local Enterprise Partnership and is a joint project between the National Trust and Guildford Borough Council.
