This concrete-bottomed ford on a one-way street over the River Wey (you can only drive it southbound) runs past a pretty mill on one side and a footbridge on the other. It can be pretty deep in flood, with an average depth of 2 feet even in summer, so take care, but we heartily recommend that you visit this, one of our favourite fords.

Further to the above, don't even try to ford the river after torrential rain. Judge Jonathan Gammon drowned here after following his GPS whilst the ford was swollen, so learn the lesson and don't repeat his mistake.
