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 Wanborough 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 204 feet from the River Wey.
