Park in the public car park at Britannia Wharf.  Car parking arrangements/shuffling will be made for the other end.
Alan Flight will be brought to Britannia Wharf, the barge retrieved from Horsell Common (with luck the Martians will have taken it away).

Task:
Taking the large heavy barge off the Basingstoke Canal (Saturday) and up the Wey to Godalming (Saturday and Sunday).  Barge movement on the Basingstoke is painfully slow, but it is hoped that with the Wey being deeper the barge will not be scraping alone the bottom and that progress will improve.
