Geocache Description:

A short series of caches along the Western end of the Basingstoke Canal

History of the Basingstoke Canal

The Basingstoke Canal is in the south east of England and flows through the counties of Hampshire and Surrey. It originally ran from the Hampshire town of Basingstoke to its junction with the River Wey Navigation in Surrey, 37 miles away.

Today, 32 miles of the original navigation have been restored, from the Wey Navigation as far as North Warnborough in Hampshire, as a public amenity catering for boaters, walkers, canoeists, anglers and naturalists.

It has 29 locks, all but one in Surrey, which together raise the canal 204ft from the River Wey. You can find more about the Basingstoke Canal here.

Eelmoor Bridge

The bridge where I used to cycle to and watch the Farnborough Air Show as a youngster, I used to sit on the now demolished pill box at the end of the runway and get the best seat in the house (I could never understand people that paid to see the Air show). An Army style Iron bridge with parking plus the fantastic views of Farnborough Airport.

Please watch for muggles when retrieving the cache
