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.

Fox and Hounds

This cache is very close to a commercial premises which apparantly dispenses alcholic beverages which is literally on the canal itself. For those with a good memory we held our Meet in Fleet It Can't Be Beat Event cache here last August (and we hope to do the same this August). Anyway from here you can go East and do the Westie Walker series of Basingstoke Canal Caches, or go West and do mine. Either way it's a nice walk and plenty of caches to be found. Needless to say there is parking at the commercial premises and very nearby off road.
