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. Refer to the Surrey and Hampshire Canal Society for more information.

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.

Bird Song Place

This is an interesting bit of the canal as it is almost completely urbanised either side. Note the small wooden house just down from here, a 1 bedroom over a garage - what people will do to live next to the canal. You can also see how many people own long boats although I wonder how much they really use them ? Anyway this place is very noisy with birds I guess as there is a small copse and plenty of nearby water.
