The Wey & Arun Canal Trust is assembling its very own 'time team' for an archaeological 'mini-dig' at Gosden Meadow, Bramley, with the goal of uncovering hidden features of Gosden aqueduct, a structure of 1815 which carried the Wey & Arun Canal over the Cranleigh Waters. The excavation will be directed by Martin Cook, an archaeologist of vast experience in such projects on England's inland waterways. The team of volunteer diggers will be hard at work by the second week of September and the excavation will remain open until Sunday 15 September, giving participants in the Trust's Heritage Open Days' guided walk from Shalford to Bramley on 15 September the chance to view what comes to light. No charge is made for participation in the guided walk, but it is essential to book your place through Guildford Tourist Office 01483 44433.
