South East Associates
Ripley, Pyrford & Wisley Walk

- Thursday 9th November -

Ripley, the birthplace of Eric Clapton, was the start-point of the November walk for our sixteen ‘Associates Rockers’.

We quickly reached Waltham weir and the River Wey Navigation.
The latter consists of a man-made canal and adapted parts of the River Wey.

A turf-sided lock was admired - ! - by our industrial archaeological buffs.

Further along the river we passed a 17th century summerhouse with plaque commemorating John Dunne, poet and Dean of St. Paul’s.

He is believed to have lived here and at Pyrford Place with his twelve children.

For our
golfers and gardeners,
we crossed
Wisley Golf Course
in fine weather
and followed the public footpath
that cuts through
the RHS gardens at Wisley,
giving views of
the bicentennial glasshouse.

Just before returning to Ripley green, we stopped at Ockham Mill, a conservation area with an attractive group of buildings besides the old mill stream.

Lunch was at the Talbot, Ripley, after a very enjoyable and varied walk.
