Basingstoke Canal Walk

53 km / 33 miles

Hants, Surrey
A permissive towpath trail from Penny Bridge, Up Nately to the Basingstoke Canal's junction with the Wey Navigation at Woodham, Surrey. The Canal walk goes through the Surrey and Hampshire countryside along the tree-lined towpath of the recently restored 200 years old canal and through woodland, heathland, wetland and pasture. The canal towpath has been reinstated as far as Up Nately, 3 miles from Basingstoke and currently the limit of the Canal walk. En route are Odiham Castle, the Deepcut flight of locks, aqueducts, scenic villages and historic buildings. Nearby stations are Hook, Winchfield, Fleet, Aldershot, Ash, Ash Vale, North Camp, Brookwood, Woking and West Byfleet.
