Who are we?

The society was originally formed in 1975 for the village of Send only and in 1982 Ripley was included in the name as it was originally part of the ancient parish of Send.

The Society is very active, run by a committee of volunteers, many of whom have been involved with the history of the villages for over 40 years. Its aim is to to educate the public in the history of the ancient parish of Send and Ripley and of any nearby parishes. Considerable research has been conducted over the years and is fully documented by way of the many articles, which have been written by members.

Images of The River Wey and the Wey Navigation. A forthcoming exhibition!

the River Wey and the Wey Navigation

Early next year we are planning an exhibition in Ripley Museum about the local stretch of the River Wey and the Wey Navigation.

As part of this, we would love you to get out and about with your cameras and phones and take pictures of how you see the river…

We plan to feature a few photos in the exhibition and show more digitally. If we get enough entries we hope to have a one-off exhibition either in Ripley or Send.

You can submit more than one picture, either in hard copy (minimum size A5) or digitally. Entry is FREE however if the exhibition goes ahead, and your photo is chosen then we would welcome a small contribution towards printing costs.
