The Environment Agency has recently funded the creation of a fish pass at the top of the Hell Ditch upstream of Godalming.
This is a brush style fish pass which connects the Hell dich to the main
River Wey. The Hell ditch hosts some good habitat which we expect coarse
fish will be using for spawning during the spring. The new fish pass will
ensure that fish can freely pass to good spawning habitat and juvenile fish
can then drop out of the Hell ditch to trickle feed the main river with
A fish rescue carried out during the fish pass construction saw a number of
different species of fish relocated to the main river.
