Walks around the Wey & Arun Canal
Loxwood Walk 3: Baldwin’s
Drungewick Aqueduct (3½ miles)
This 3½ mile walk encompasses the section of the Loxwood Link from
the Canal Centre east along
the towpath past Brewhurst Lock, Baldwin’s Knob Lock and Drungewick Aqueduct and
a figure of eight via pretty fields and woodland. There is an optional 1-mile
walk extension to include
From the Canal Centre walk along the towpath heading east towards Brewhurst
Lock (A). The lock was first
restored by the Trust during 1994-1997. Its curious back to front appearance
resulted from the lowering of
the canal in 2006 to enable the building of the new bridge to take the canal
under Loxwood High Street.
Continue alongside the canal for ¾ mile passing Brewhurst Bridge to
reach Baldwin’s Knob Lock (B) which
was restored by the Trust between 1991 and 1993.
Continue for a further ¾ mile, passing Barnsill Bridge to reach
Drungewick Aqueduct and bridge (C). The
Aqueduct was constructed by the Trust from 2002 to 2003. The bridge was rebuilt
by the Trust between
2000 and 2001.
