Description

A stretch of the Thames offering river fishing in north Surrey. Fishing is free, and there are many swims.

This part of the river is accessed from a variety of points, with free parking available.

About a quarter of the way along this stretch lies Walton Wharf. This is accessed by Hill Rise that runs off of Manor Road. This area is a mooring point so fishing is not permitted directly around Hill Rise. This is where The Swan and The Anglers public houses are sited; KT12 2PF.

Felix Road Recreation Ground is located about midway along this length of the river. Parking is available in the surrounding roads (Dudley Road KT12 2JU, and Felix Road KT12 2LB) and the river bank is accessed via a short walk across this park.

The downstream end of this section can be accessed via Waterside Drive where there is ample parking near the leisure centre and the football club. KT12 2JG.
