On The Wey

Iona on the River Wey

The horsedrawn passenger boat business with narrowboat Iona might be desribed as 40 years old this year, as it started out in 1969 at Norbury on the Shropshire Union Canal. A second boat came into use, and was given the same name of Iona as the first boat. The business was then sold with horse and boat and, without missing a season, set up at Godalming on the River Wey, where it still operates.

This season boathorses Rosie age 24, Ben age 16, and Denzell age 8 have shared the workload of carrying the many passengers enjoying a 2 hour trip on the River Wey.
