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.

Poulters Bridge

This cache is beside the Poulters Bridge which was originally built in 1792 but more recently restored in 1977 (Jubilee Year) by the Crookham Village Association. I placed a cache here as it's a very picturesque part of the canal and has access to some footpaths if you want to extend your trip a bit. I recommend cycling as everyone can cycle along the tow path. And if you have the kids with you bring some bread - there are always hungry ducks somewhere.
